The Prime Minister will address the U.N. General Assembly on the morning of September 27, the last day of his visit.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit the U.S. between September 21 and September 27 during which he will address the annual U.N. General Assembly session and have a series of bilateral and multilateral engagements in New York, the Ministry of External Affairs said on September 12.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said Mr. Modi will also attend an Indian community event in Houston during the visit.

“The (PM’s) visit will be from late evening of September 21 to forenoon of September 27,” Mr. Kumar said during a media briefing.

According to an updated list of speakers for the General Debate of the 74th session of the U.N. General Assembly (UNGA), Mr. Modi will address the session on the morning of September 27.

His speech at the U.N. will be the first after winning a second term.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan is also scheduled to address the session on September 27, shortly after Mr. Modi’s speech.

As the world commemorates Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, Mr. Modi will also host a special event ‘Leadership Matters: Relevance of Gandhi in the Contemporary World’ on September 24 in the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Chamber in the U.N. Headquarters.
