Modi welcome in US: White House

Washington - The United States swiftly courted India's future Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday, saying the victorious Hindu nationalist would be welcome to visit despite a previous visa ban.

White House spokesman Jay Carney also said President Barack Obama hoped to speak to Modi by telephone soon, following the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) landslide election victory.
