Modi Speaks To Biden, Discusses ‘Rules-Based International Order’

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said he spoke to United States President Joe Biden, and conveyed his best wishes for the latter’s success.

Modi said they discussed regional issues and their shared priorities, while also agreeing to further co-operation against climate change.

“President Joe Biden and I are committed to a rules-based international order. We look forward to consolidating our strategic partnership to further peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond,” Modi said in a tweet.

Biden won the election against former US President Donald Trump last year. He took over the office formally in January in a fairly rocky transition, amid allegations of voter fraud and the US Capitol riot, egged on by Trump.

Modi had earlier congratulated Biden and Vice-president Kamala Harris after the duo took their presidential oaths in January. Congratulating them, Modi had said he looked forward to working with the new US President ‘to strengthen India-US strategic partnership’.

“My best wishes for a successful term in leading USA as we stand united and resilient in addressing common challenges and advancing global peace and security,” he had said, adding that the India-US partnership was based on shared values.

“We have a substantial and multifaceted bilateral agenda, growing economic engagement and vibrant people to people linkages. Committed to working with President @JoeBiden to take the India-US partnership to even greater heights,” he had said on Twitter at the time.

The first high-level engagement between the Modi government and the Joe Biden administration took place two weeks ago, when US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin spoke to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and exchanged views on pressing regional and global issues including developments in the Indo-Pacific.
