In 2019, United States President Donald Trump may be the chief guest in Republic Day parade and Narendra Modi government has also sent a formal invitation to the White House as per the reports.
The invitation sent by Narendra Modi government is being favourably looked by the US Administration of President Donald Trump.
In April, the invitation was sent to White House followed by a series of diplomatic meetings between the two sides.
In 2015, Barack Obama was the chief guest in Republic Day parade. It will be a great achievement for Narendra Modi government if Trump chooses to come to India for the parade.
When serious differences have grown up between both the countries over many issues then the report about inviting Trump to Republic day parade in 2019 by Narendra Modi government have came out.
India was expected to highlight ways to address some of the differences in 2+2 dialogue which was postponed by White-House which have left many questions.
In spite of all these, India may be among the countries which might get waiver from sanctions the US is threatening to enforce on those importing crude from Iran which the Narendra Modi-led NDA dispensation is hoping.
Last year in 2018, the chief guest for Republic day parade were Heads of States from 10 ASEAN (Association of South East Asian Nations)
