Monday January 19, 2015 7:04 AM, IANS

With less than a week left for US President Barack Obama's visit to India to attend the Republic Day parade, the government Sunday said it will do everything to ensure his convenience and to make it a visit that he "will cherish for a long, long time".

"President Obama is an honoured guest in India and we will do everything that ensures his convenience. This is an honour that we have extended to the head of state of one of our mostly friendly partners," External affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said at a briefing here.

"So, we will do everything that is possible to ensure his stay here is comfortable, is something that he will cherish for a long, long time," he said.

Obama and his wife Michelle Obama arrive in India Jan 25 for a three-day visit that would see the US president hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

On Jan 26, he would attend the Republic Day parade as the chief guest and in the evening the At Home reception hosted by President Pranab Mukherjee.

He is likely to address a town-hall style meeting in an educational institution.

President Obama and Michelle Obama would fly down to Agra the following day for a visit to the Taj Mahal before flying out of India.
