Trump inability to attend R-Day event confirmed
US President Donald Trump is unable to participate as the Chief Guest of India’s Republic Day celebrations next year due to scheduling constraints, the White House has said.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi invited Trump for a bilateral visit to India during their talks in Washington last year.
“President Trump was honoured by Prime Minister Modi’s invitation for him to be Chief Guest of India’s Republic Day on January 26, 2019 but is unable to participate due to scheduling constraints,” a White House spokesperson said. (PTI)
