Obama leaves for Saudi Arabia after Three-Day Visit to India ends

New Delhi, Jan 27: After addressing the Indian audience at Siri Fort Auditorium in the National capital, US President Barack Obama and his wife left for Saudi Arabia on his air force one flight from Palam.

During his three-day visit to India, he was on the focus of international media. He lauded India and its diverse culture that is the biggest strength of the country to grow. In his brief address in a unique style to Indian audience at Siri Fort, he impressed all. His speech proved that he is a true global leader. He began his speech with "Namaste" and referred Bollywood dialogue that proved that he keeps interest in many things related to India and its culture. He won the hearts of every Indian when he remembered Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda, whom he adores the most.

Obama is the first American president to have attended the Republic Day celebration making his trip as the remarkable and historical. All the credit went to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the grand welcome and spectacular reception for Mr President and US first lady Michelle Obama in India.

During his trip, he attended several meetings and events. He addressed the CEOs at a meeting after attending the 66th Republic Day parade and At Home reception organised by President of India Pranab Mukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhawan.

However, he had to drop his plan to visit Taj Mahal in Agra after the death of Saudi Arabia King Abdullah. He moved today to attend the funeral ceremony of the King, who passed away on Friday. The US has close relation with Saudi Arabia.

On valediction, Prime Minister Modi took to Twitter and posted, "Farewell @WhiteHouse! Your visit has taken India-USA ties to a new level & opened a new chapter. Wish you a safe journey".

In reply, The White House tweeted, "Thank you @NarendraModi for a memorable visit, and to the Indian people for their warm welcome".
