Washington, septmber 25: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will meet US President Barack Obama on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly on Monday, the White House said.

Senior Obama national security aide Ben Rhodes said Thursday the discussions would include issues related to a major climate conference, where countries are being asked to set emissions targets.The two leaders held cordial talks in New Delhi earlier this year, marking a warming of relations that had been strained by a series of diplomatic upsets in late 2013.

Heading to New York for the UN General Assembly, Modi will address a sustainable development forum before traveling to Silicon Valley seeking to promote his country as open for business.

Modi will meet Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg and other Internet leaders as he pushes for investment in India's IT sector, after coming to power in May 2014 pledging to revive India's flagging economy.
