As the US gears up to host Prime Minister Narendra Modi in September, top American leaders — from both sides of the aisle — and officials are going to visit India this July.
The Indian Express has learnt that US Secretary of State John Kerry, Senior Republican Senator John McCain and US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns will visit India in the coming weeks, with separate itineraries, in a bid to give a fresh momentum to the relationship between the two countries ahead of the much-awaited meeting between US President Barack Obama and Modi.
With US Senator John McCain scheduled to visit India on July 2 and 3, the Indian side is ready to welcome him.

It may be recalled that the Republican Senator has joined the group of legislators urging Congressional leadership to invite Modi to address a joint session of the US Congress.
The Arizona Senator is likely to meet Modi and his national security team.
The US Secretary of State John Kerry will be in Delhi in the last week of July to meet External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and begin work on the deliverables for the Modi visit.
However, before Kerry’s visit, US Deputy Secretary William J Burns will arrive to prepare ground.
