NEW YORK: Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in New York on Monday in the final leg of his five-day US visit.

He has a packed day of engagements, including a summit meeting with US President Barack Obama, before he heads home.

"Back in city that never sleeps. An early morning arrival allows for a full final day for PM @narendramodi in New York," tweeted external affairs ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup.

"Power Monday. PM @narendramodi to meet leaders of the UK, France and the US, all in the course of one morning," he posted.
