Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday shared a photo from his flight to the United States where he has a packed schedule, including a Quad meeting and an address to the UN General Assembly. "A long flight also means opportunities to go through papers and some file work," the Prime Minister tweeted, posting a photo of himself at work onboard the Boeing 777-337 VVIP flight.

At the Joint Base Andrews in Washington DC, PM Modi was welcomed by a large crowd of Indian Americans, some chanting his name and waving the Indian flag amid light showers.
"Grateful to the Indian community in Washington DC for the warm welcome. Our diaspora is our strength. It is commendable how the Indian diaspora has distinguished itself across the world," PM Modi tweeted, as he shared the pictures on Twitter.
PM Modi was received at the airport by senior officials of the Biden Administration and India's Ambassador to the US Taranjit Singh Sandhu.
