Prime Minister Narendra Modi added a personal note to a diplomatic gesture during a meeting with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris on Thursday and discussed several global issues, including the pandemic and Pakistan's role in terrorism. It was the first meeting between the two world leaders since January, when Ms. Harris became the first person of Indian descent to be sworn in as Vice President of the United States.

After what the two leaders described as a "fruitful" meeting, the Prime Minister presented Ms. Harris, 56, a five-decade-old government statement mentioning her grandfather, PV Gopalan. As a government official, Mr. Gopalan held various positions. The message from 1966 was presented in a handcrafted wooden frame.
Among the gifts was a chess game from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh, the prime minister's parliamentary constituency.  

"The excite craft of Gulabi Meenakari (used in the chess set) is closely associated with Kashi, one of the oldest cities of the world," said a government statement. "Each piece on this particular chess set is remarkably handcrafted. The bright colours reflect the vibrancy of Kashi," it added. 

"Glad to have met @VP @KamalaHarri. Her feat has inspired the entire world. We talked about multiple subjects that will further cement the India-USA friendship, which is based on shared values and cultural linkages," the Prime Minister tweeted, shortly after the meeting, along with a few pictures. 

When the prime minister had back-to-back talks with quad executives at the start of his three-day visit to the United States, Varanasi's gifts were the culmination of diplomatic exchanges.

The Prime Minister gave a"Silver Gulabi Meenakari ship". "This ship is also distinctly handcrafted and bright, reflecting eternal Kashi's dynamism," the statement read.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga received a sandalwood Buddha statue. Japan PM got a Buddha statue.


"Buddhism plays a big role in bringing India and Japan together. The thoughts and ideals of Lord Buddha reverberate far and wide in Japan. During his previous visits to Japan, PM Modi has visited Buddhist temples as well," says the official statement.
