Washington.: Influential US lawmakers welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the US and reiterated their commitment to strengthening the India-US ties.

"I welcome Indian PM Modi to the US. Strong US-India ties are in our long-term interest, but religious freedom must also remain a priority," Senator Marco Rubio tweeted.

"Glad to see Prime Minister #Modi visiting Washington to maintain strong ties between the US & #India," Congressman Frank Pallone, a former chairman of Congressional caucus on India and Indian Americans, said.

"I welcome Indias PM @narendramodi back to the US. I hope our friendship continues to grow," said Congressman Eliot Engel in a tweet.

"I welcome Indian PM @NarendraModi to the United States and reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between our two nations," Senator Kamala Harris said in a tweet earlier.

"Welcome back to DC, @narendramodi! Excited by opportunities for US & India to work together to achieve common goals. #ModiInUS," said Congressman Steny Hoyer, the Democratic Whip in the US House of Representatives.
