On May 21, Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Papua New Guinea. The reception PM Modi received upon his arrival in Papua New Guinea was remarkable.
PM James Marape of Papua New Guinea personally arrived at the airport to welcome PM Modi in a historic act.
When PM Modi first arrived in the island nation, PM Marape touched PM Modi’s feet and asked for his blessing.
Papua New Guinea typically does not hold a formal welcome for any leader who arrives in the country after nightfall.
However, Papua New Guinea defied convention and organised a unique ceremonial greeting for Prime Minister Modi.
Notably, Narendra Modi has visited Papua New Guinea for the first time as prime minister of India.
The leaders of 14 nations will attend the FIPIC Summit, which PM Modi is attending in Papua New Guinea.
Following his visit to PNG, PM Modi will go to Australia to meet with PM Anthony Albanese.
A sizable Indian community resides in Harris Park, according to the Australian government website. Following the Summit, India has been receiving back-to-back invites from G7 countries.
