May 18, 2013 12:44 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is expected to travel to Washington in a few months at the invitation of United States President Barack Obama.

Obama's invitation to Dr Singh was delivered by US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns during his recent visit to New Delhi, sources said.

Dr Singh has accepted the invitation and will be traveling to Washington, the sources said.

The PM's visit to Washington could be clubbed with his tour to New York when he travels there to attend the United Nations General Assembly, they said. This will be Dr Singh's second bilateral visit to the US during Obama's tenure.
