A Downing Street spokesman said the "bilateral meeting" would take place "in the margins" of the forum. "In addition to the keynote address, Modi will also have bilateral meeting with Swiss President Alain Berset".

While May was the first foreign leader to visit the White House previous year, relations between the USA and the United Kingdom have proved to be rocky in recent months.

Modi will also have an interaction with 120 members of the investor community at WEF on January 23 which will include heads of General Motors, Salesforce and Royal Dutch Shell, Nestle and JP Morgan.

Trump is a hugely controversial figure in Britain, where he recently caused an uproar by retweeting the anti-Muslim videos of the leader of a far-right group.

Anger towards the USA president escalated further following reports of allegedly racist language used by the President in the Oval office during a briefing about immigration.

It is expected that Mr Trump will seize the opportunity to promote his "America First" strategy.

"His visit next month would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests".
