Two Indian newspapers reported on Thursday that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Washington to meet President Barack Obama in September, signaling a new start in ties with a leader once denied a visa by the United States. The Times of India and the Hindustan Times said Modi, who swept to power in a general election last month, has accepted an invitation from Obama for two-way talks in Washington. No comment was immediately available from the Indian government press office or from the U.S. embassy.
