Modi, Biden have very practical relationship: US NSA | India News

WASHINGTON/ NEW DELHI: US President Joe Biden and PM Narendra Modi have a productive and very practical relationship, the American national security advisor said ahead of the bilateral meeting between the two leaders on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia.
“I would point out PM 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 and to talk by phone and on video, multiple times,” US national security advisor Jake Sullivan told reporters at the White House.
Modi is also likely to hold bilateral meetings with UK PM Rishi Sunak, French President Emmanuel Macron and German chancellor Olaf Scholz at the summit.
Sullivan said Biden and PM Modi see common interests on a number of critical issues and have really worked together to strengthen the US-India partnership.
“When you add all that up, it is a productive, very practical relationship,” Sullivan added. “President Biden is looking forward to seeing PM Modi at the G20 this year, as we look ahead to the next year,” he said. India will hold the presidency of the G20 next year and there is a possibility of a US presidential visit to the country.
