President Joe Biden, according to US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, is looking forward to meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the G20 this year.
US President Joe Biden and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi have a fruitful and extremely practical relationship, according to the US national security advisor ahead of the two leaders bilateral meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 conference in Bali, Indonesia.
“I would point out that Prime Minister Modi has already been to the White House since President Biden took office, and the two of them have had the opportunity to meet in person multiple times, as well as a talk by phone and on video multiple times,” US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters on Thursday at the White House.
He stated that the two leaders share the same interests on a number of crucial topics and have worked hard to deepen the US-India relationship.
“When all of that is considered, it is a fruitful, highly practical partnership,” Sullivan remarked.
“As we look ahead to the coming year, President Biden is looking forward to seeing Prime Minister Modi at the G20 this year,” he said.
Next year, India will hold the G20 presidency, and a US presidential visit to the country is possible.
“President Biden will undoubtedly participate in that G20.” “I don’t have anything to announce about previous visits to India or the White House,” Sullivan added.
