Washington: In wake of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s high-profile visit, US President Joe Biden on Sunday categorised the New Delhi-Washington friendship among the “most consequential” in the world.
In a tweet from his official handle, he said: “The friendship between the United States and India is among the most consequential in the world. And it’s stronger, closer, and more dynamic than ever.”
In his tweet, Biden also shared a video capturing the glimpse of Modi’s visit.
Prime Minister Modi was on a four-day US visit (June 21-24), during which he participated in International Yoga Day event at UN headquarters, met with thought leaders and business magnates, and addressed a joint session of the US Congress.
