Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Facebook headquarters at California, US, later this month, the social networking site's co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Sunday.

"I am excited to announce that Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India will be visiting Facebook HQ later this month for a Townhall Q&A. Prime Minister Modi and I will discuss how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges," Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page.

Zuckerberg added that the event will be held on September 27.

He also invited Facebook users to ask questions by posting them in the comments section. "We'll try to get to as many as possible," he wrote.

"I'll post the live video here and it will also be on Prime Minister Modi's page. I had the chance to visit Prime Minister Modi in India last year and it's an honour to have the chance to host him here at Facebook," he said.

Modi is scheduled to be in the US September 23-28 and will attend meetings at the United Nations.
