Prime Minister Narendra Modi discussed the Covid-19 situation and the recent global developments related to the Afghanistan crisis and the Indo-Pacific region in a meeting with United States Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday. Modi is currently on a three-day visit to the US.

The Indian prime minister is scheduled to attend the first in-person summit of the Quad grouping and address the General Assembly of the United Nations on Saturday.
