Trump in­abil­ity to at­tend R-Day event con­firmed

Gulf News - - India -

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)
