Speaker Invites India Prime Minister to Address Congress

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
WASHINGTON Apr 28, 2016, 12:05 PM ET

House Speaker Paul Ryan says he has invited Prime Minister Narendra Modi (nah-REN'-drah MOH'-dee) of India to address a joint meeting of Congress on June 8.

Ryan told reporters at his weekly news conference about the invitation for the first joint meeting since he became speaker last fall.

Ryan said the friendship between the U.S. and India is a "pillar of stability" in a critical region of the world.

Modi would be the fifth prime minister of India to address a joint meeting of Congress, and the first since 2005.

The speaker's office says the tradition of foreign leaders addressing Congress dates to Dec. 10, 1824, when Marquis de Lafayette of France spoke in the House chamber.

1. June 8th, a day in which children will be safe from GOP congressmen pedophiles.

The few GOP men who have recently occupied the House Speaker's seat are quite a mess.
