The relationship between India and the United States has intensified within the first 100 days of the Biden administration, a State Department official stated in Washington.
The engagement between the 2 international locations throughout this era displays a worldwide complete partnership, State Department spokesperson Ned Price stated, asserting that there was a concerted concentrate on India over these 100 days.
“There’s been a concerted focus on India over the past 100 days. President Biden, of course, did make mention of India in his (State of the Union) address last night, and I think you can look at that deep partnership and commitment to partnership through any number of lenses,” Price stated at his day by day information convention.
Biden himself had a chance to talk to Prime Minister Narendra Modi just lately. Secretary of State Tony Blinken has engaged along with his counterpart, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, a number of occasions as nicely, he stated.
There have been a number of high-level delegations. Special Envoy on Climate Change John Kerry was in India not all that way back. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was in India to debate components of India-US safety cooperation, Price stated.
“We have engaged with India in a multilateral context as well through the Quad, both at the ministerial level and, for the first time ever, at the leader level,” he stated.
“I have mentioned our climate cooperation, but also our health cooperation, and this was something that predates the pandemic but has intensified with the onset of the pandemic and even further with the uptick in cases that we have seen in India in recent days,” Price stated.
“So, I think it is this engagement that reflects our global comprehensive partnership,” he stated in response to a query.
