Modi holds first bilateral meeting with Joe Biden

Washington: The relationship between India and US, the two largest democracies in the world, is destined to be “stronger, closer and tighter,” US President Joe Biden said on Friday as he hosted Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the White House for the first bilateral meeting during which the two leaders discussed a wide range of priority issues, including combating COVID-19, climate change and economic cooperation.

Prime Minister Modi, who is visiting the US for the 7th time after assuming office in 2014, described Friday’s bilateral summit with Biden as important as they’re meeting at the start of the third decade of this century.

Biden said that technology is becoming a driving force. We have to utilise our talents to leverage technology for greater global good.
