After a meeting between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US Vice-President Kamala Harris in Washington, Mr. Modi extended an invitation to Ms. Harris for a visit to India.
Ms. Harris made history when she became the first woman and first black and South Asian vice-president in the U.S.
Mr. Modi congratulated Ms. Harris on her historic position and invited her to return the visit.
“The people of India are waiting to welcome you,” he said.
In November, residents of Ms. Harris’ ancestral village, Thulasendrapuram, in India’s south, lit fireworks and marched in the street following news of her win.
