Cooperation on how to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, its economic effects, and the Indo-Pacific was the subject during the very first discussions between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and United States President-elect Joe Biden.

After Democrat Biden defeated current President Donald Trump in the US presidential election, this was the first meeting between the two leaders.

”Spoke to US President-elect Joe Biden on phone to congratulate him. We reiterated our firm commitment to the Indo-US strategic partnership and discussed our shared priorities and concerns — COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and cooperation in the Indo-Pacific Region,” Modi said in a tweet.

He also extended his congratulations to Biden on the elected Vice President Kamala Harris, telling her that, “success is a matter of great pride and inspiration to members of the vibrant Indo-American community, which is a tremendous source of force for Indo-American relations. “.

It said that the prime minister warmly remembered his previous experiences with Biden, including during his official visits to the US in 2014 and 2016. The Joint Session of the US Congress, which Modi addressed during his 2016 visit to the United States, was chaired by Biden, the PMO said.

The Indo-Pacific, a term that was the subject of both the attention of Trump Admin and New Delhi and demonstrates continuity on the matter, is one region that both reads discuss. The idea, backed by India, the United States and like-minded partners, is regarded by China with suspicion.
