Modi-Biden's first bilateral talks to be held on September 23
This US visit of PM Modi will be important in many ways. During this, he is likely to have his first bilateral meeting with President Biden on 23 September. Discussions are going on between the two countries regarding Modi's bilateral meeting with Australian PM Morrison on 23 September. The top-level meeting between the two countries has not been held since the bilateral meeting during the visit of former President Donald Trump to India in February 2020. The talks between Modi and Biden were only for a few minutes over the telephone and that too on a limited number of issues. In such a situation, his meeting with Modi will be very important in deciding the direction of relations with India during Biden's tenure.
