Washington/Vientiane, Sep 7 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama will hold a bilateral meeting on Thursday in Vientiane, Laos, in perhaps one of their last such meetings before Obama demits office in November.
The White House made the announcement of the bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the ASEAN Summit in its official announcement of the President’s schedule.
“In the afternoon, the President will hold a bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India,” the White House said.
On Wednesday night, the two leaders along with Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah clinked glasses at a dinner gala thrown by the Laos Prime Minister in Vientiane.
The two leaders met just days ago, on Sunday in Hangzhou, China, during the G20 Summit where Obama praised the passage of the Good and Services Tax bill by the Indian Parliament.
