At the same time, Modi said that he was happy with the way Indians were playing an essential role in America’s progress.
In response, Modi (Narendra Modi) said: ‘I had the opportunity to speak with you in 2014 and 2016. You declared your plan for the relations between India and the United States.
As President of the United States (Joe Biden), you are pursuing that idea. Narendra Modi stated that trade between the two countries would also play an essential role in improving the bilateral relations between India and the United States.
In his opening speech to the meeting with Narendra Modi, Joe Biden also said that he was about to start a new chapter in the two countries. “I’ve known you for a long time,” he said.
Indeed, he added, “I am pleased that you are back in the White House. You are aware of the history of our two countries. Our relationship has always been perfect.”
Biden added: “we must strengthen the relations between India and the United States.
We need to work together to control extremes, climate change, and make India and the Pacific more secure.”
