India has invited US president Donald Trump to be the Chief guest for Republic Day, 2019.
The US has not responded to the invitation sent by India in April this year. Sources said that the Trump administration is considering the invite. Here it is worth mentioning that US Former President Barak Obama was the Chief guest on Republic Day, 2015.
However it should not be forgotten that Relations between the two countries have tensed as US imposed restrictions on oil imports from Iran, the proposed deal for Russian-made S-400 missile defence systems and trade tariffs.
