Biden said – Our relationship is most important in the 21st century
President Joe Biden gave a speech to welcome PM Modi. He said, Prime Minister, you are welcome again. I have always believed that this relationship between the United States and India is one of the most important relationships of the 21st century. The very first words of our Constitution state that we, the citizens of the country, have an enduring relationship and shared values between our peoples and our shared responsibility as global leaders to deal with the issues of the present. I am honored that for the first time in nearly 15 years, the United States of America is hosting an official state visit to the Republic of India.
Biden said that with your cooperation, we have strengthened the Quad for a free, open, secure and prosperous Indo-Pacific. Decades from now, people will look back and say that the Quad changed the course of history for the global good. The values of equality under law, freedom of expression, religious pluralism, diversity of our people have been strengthened and developed.
