The newly elected US President, Joe Biden, 77, has faith in India-US bilateral partnership, which he observes as the 21st century’s defining relationship. Taking his past track record towards fortifying India-US ties, Biden is planning to further extend it as there are ample scopes in advocating bilateral trade structure.
Back in 2013, when Joe Biden visited India as the then vice president, he fixed a target of taking the bilateral trade to USD 500 billion. The amount has now been a little over USD 150 billion. In several ways, Biden showed a positive outlook on the bilateral ties of India and the USA, which was inked during his election rallies also.
Looking little back, Biden has even put an objection to Donald Trump’s remark during election campaigns where he called India’s air as ‘filthy’. He even made tweets against Trump’s accusations on China, India, and Russia for not controlling ‘filthiness of air’, where Biden discarded this and said, “It’s not how you solve global challenges like climate change.”
