Alice Wells, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asia, told IANS in an interview that "He is certain that President Trump looks forward to being able to visit India at an appropriate time".
Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited Trump to be the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations next year. Meanwhile, when asked if Trump would come to the celebrations or would schedule his visit for another time, Wells said that the White House will decide to take into account "both the domestic commitments he has here in the US as well as overseas". Moreover, Wells pointed to the steady stream of US officials who visit India as a symbol of the close ties between the two countries at the official level.
Reports added that Modi first met Trump in Washington in 2017, and also at other multilateral meetings. A military parade is the center of the Republic Day Celebrations and Trump has been a fan of such parades and wants the US to have one, too.
