In perhaps the first explanation of the US denial of visa for Narendra Modi, the Obama Administration today said the decision was taken by the “previous” government.
“It’s a very big deal. Different government, it’s a different government now. Just like it is here. We will welcome Prime Minister Modi. “He is going to get a welcome. Of course, he will get a visa. No question whatsoever. And we look forward to a terrific meeting with President Obama in September,” Secretary of State John Kerry said.
