PM Modi Congratulates Joe Biden, Speaks About Indo-US Issues Of Mutual Cooperation
The Indian PM also hailed the victory of US vice-president elect Kamala Harris and called her win a matter of pride for the Indian community
Indian prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated United States new president-elect Joe Biden over a phone call yesterday. The two global leaders reiterated their commitment towards the growth of the strategic Indo-US bilateral partnership. They also spoke about mutual concerns including the COVID19 pandemic, climate change and cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region.
Though this was Modi’s first interaction with Biden after the latter defeated incumbent President Donald Trump in the US presidential elections this month, India’s equation with Biden goes back to the Barack Obama regime. The PM recalled his earlier interaction with the then-vice president Biden during his visit to America in 2014 and 2016.
Biden was present during Modi’s Congress address in the US in 2014. In 2016, the Democrat leader played an important role when mutual relations between the two nations underwent a radical transformation. He also pushed for a senate approval for the consensual nuclear deal in 2008.
Indian Minister of External Affairs, S Jaishankar is positive about India and the US working well together in the future.
In a related development, PM Modi also hailed the victory of the US vice-president elect Kamala Harris through a tweet. He termed the part-Indian origin leader’s win a matter of pride for the vibrant Indo-US community.
