President Moon Jae-in was received at the airport by PM Modi. 2 days back he was received by PM Modi at the Delhi airport. And tomorrow he will be again received by PM Modi in Delhi maybe. That’s what the media thinks but sources have revealed that PM Modi is one step ahead in providing excellent hospitality to his counterparts. He is planning to leave for South Korea so that he can welcome President Moon Jae-in when he flies back to Israel after the completion of his trip.

On Sunday, President Moon Jae-in started his three-day tour. However, welcoming Moon Jae-in at the airport was Prime Minister Narendra Modi who broke security protocol with this big gesture. Modi has missed a chance to personally welcome a foreign guest at the airport. And he expects the same from his counterparts when he visits their country. The smile with which he receives his guests is legendary and world leaders have always appreciated his personal welcome.

President Moon Jae-in visited Delhi and Agra yesterday. Today he will be accompanying PM Modi on a roadshow in UP. As per the press release, the Israeli PM is supposed to visit Mumbai tomorrow and arrangements have been made for PM Modi to receive him there with full-fledged celebrations.  But as soon as the Mumbai visit starts, PM Modi will soon leave for South Korea as he has to reach there before Friday to welcome President Moon Jae-in on his return to Seol.

PM Modi will be accompanied by delegates from the PMO, and industrial sectors to receive Israeli PM in Israel. This will be the first at an instance in the world where a  PM will receive his counterpart in his counterpart’s country. This gesture is bound to create a great promotion for India’s impeccable hospitality across the globe.
