PHILADELPHIA (Diya TV) — Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the only national leader to be featured in President Barack Obama’s introduction video at this week’s Democratic National Convention.

The 10-minute video was screened ahead of Obama’s marquee address to the convention. It outlined the multitude of accomplishments his administration achieved, including the efforts made by the president to revive the U.S. economy that was reeling under the aftermaths of the 2008 recession that shook the world and the killing of al-Qaeda terrorist Osama Bin Laden.

The image of Obama and Modi together taken during the Paris Climate Summit was included in the opening video streamed before his speech began. Another notable person appeared in the video was UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

Modi’s appearance in the video reminds us once again the relationship the two top diplomats have maintained since assuming office. Obama had praised Modi when he was selected as one of the 100 most influential people by Time magazine in 2015.

“Determined to help more Indians follow in his path, he’s laid out an ambitious vision to reduce extreme poverty, improve education, empower women and girls and unleash India’s true economic potential while confronting climate change. Like India, he transcends the ancient and the modern—a devotee of yoga who connects with Indian citizens on Twitter and imagines a “digital India,” Obama wrote.

“When he came to Washington, Narendra and I visited the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We reflected on the teachings of King and Gandhi and how the diversity of backgrounds and faiths in our countries is a strength we have to protect. Prime Minister Modi recognizes that more than 1 billion Indians living and succeeding together can be an inspiring model for the world,” Obama said.
