Original Story

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived in Brussels Wednesday on his first official trip to Belgium. He will lay a wreath at the site of the March 22 terror attack at the Maelbeek metro station, where an Indian national was also killed. Modi will be in Brussels for a day to attend the India-EU summit.

Modi was given the guard of honour on his arrival at Brussels. He will meet Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel later in the day.

The Indian PM will visit the Maelbeek metro station, the site of last week's suicide bombing, in which more than 20 people were killed, including Indian techie Raghavendra Ganesan whose death was confirmed by Belgian authorities only this week.

The Brussels terror attacks are expected to be a significant point of discussion at the India-EU summit.

Modi will later meet with the diamond trading community in Antwerp, and will address a 5,000-strong crowd of members from the Indian diaspora.

He will then head to the United States to attend the 4th Nuclear Security Summit in Washington.
