Barack Obama In Delhi Today, for the Obama Foundation-New Delhi
Former US President Barack Obama, who is in Delhi today for the Obama Foundation, has likely met Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit. The two leaders had established a warm relationship during President Obama’s tenure.
In a message on Facebook, Obama said, “I will lead an assembly with young Indian leaders who can talk to me about the work they are trying to do to improve communities and answer questions about how the Obama Foundation can help.
At City Hall, which will be held today at 3:45 pm, the former president of the United States is expected to communicate with some 280 young leaders from across India.
It is broadcast on Obama.org and on the Obama Foundation’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The meeting will “broaden the conversation about what it means to be an active citizen and have an impact and how the Obama Foundation can support emerging leaders,” Obama said in a statement.
His office also said he would meet with Prime Minister Modi during the visit, although no timetable was specified, Washington having reported the post.
Bilateral relations between India and the United States reached a new peak under the Obama administration.
Although PM Modi stayed four times in the United States and was hosted in the White House, President Obama was the main guest at the celebration of the Republic in 2015, months before he lost his position.
During the visit, he even co-organized “Mann ki Baat”, the Prime Minister’s monthly radio program.
The visit to India is part of Obama’s three-nation tour, which also includes China and France. In China, he is expected to meet with President Xi Joining, who recently welcomed US President Donald Trump in Beijing.
Prior to that, Obama organized events with young leaders in Germany, Indonesia, and Brazil.
