US President Donald Trump refuses Invitation as the Main Guest of R-Day celebrations of India

New Delhi, India: US President Donald Trump has reportedly refused the invitation to join the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations of India. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in August that President Trump has received an invitation from India. He told the reporters that 'I know the invitation has been received but there is no final decision on this.' Although the Ministry of External Affairs has not issued any statement. On the other hand, the US Embassy in Delhi says that only the White House could say something about the President's visit.

For the past few days, the US officials were indicating that President Trump will not come to India in January as the State of the Union Address is also proposed in the winter. Although former US President Barack Obama had come to India and joined the Republic Day celebrations, at that time the State of the Union address was proposed in January. Significantly, the matter of denial of the invitation to join the main guest of the Republic Day celebrations of India has emerged in a time when there has been a disagreement between the two countries on many issues. In spite of banning Iran, especially in the United States, the Trump Administration had expressed displeasure over the decision to take India's oil from there.

Significantly, the US had said in the past that it has been "very carefully" reviewing the decision to continue oil import from Iran and purchase of S-400 from the country's air defense system from Russia on November 4, says US Secretary. Foreign Ministry spokesman Heather Knott said that this would not be beneficial for India. They said on Thursday, "Those who continue importing oil from Iran will be effective from November 4. We are in talks with many partners and partners of Iran around the world for sanctions."
