WASHINGTON: U.S. President Barack Obama has been briefed by his top cabinet ministers who recently met Prime Minister Narendra Modi during their visits to India and discussed the broad relationship between the two strategic partners.

Obama received the briefing on his Cabinet ministers recent trip to India when Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel met him at the White House on Tuesday and Monday respectively.

Neither of these were India specific meetings, but a routine meeting that Obama has with his key Cabinet ministers on a regular basis.

"The President after the election of Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, invited him to Washington. We're still working on locking down a date. The president does look forward to meeting with the Prime Minister at a mutually convenient time," White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.

Prime Minister Modi is expected to visit the U.S. in September last week to attend the UN General Assembly and meet President Obama at the White House.

Referring to the recent India trip by Kerry and Hagel during which they not only met their Indian counterparts but also Modi, Earnest said they discussed the very broad relationship between the United States and India.
