Modi Addresses Joint Session of US Congress

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addresses a joint session of both houses of the US Congress:



His speech touched on shared values of freedom and democracy, along with economic and security ties. In a speech which brought the audience to their feet in standing ovations multiple times, Modi even playfully ribbed the US Congress (@16:52), by comparing its politically partisan feuding to that of India's politics, mentioning his problems in the Rajya Sabha.

All in all, a very good speech, which was very well received.
