PM Modi to hold virtual interaction with US President Joe Biden tomorrow

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a virtual meeting with President Joe Biden on Monday. The two leaders will review the ongoing bilateral cooperation, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said on Sunday.

PM Modi and President Biden will also exchange views on recent developments in South Asia, the Indo-Pacific region and global issues of mutual interest.

“President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. will meet virtually with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India on Monday, April 11 to further deepen ties between our governments, economies, and our people,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki announced.

The meeting will be held against the backdrop of differences between the two sides on the conflict in Ukraine and its fallout on the world order. In a rare expression of these differences, Biden said last month the world had mounted a “united front” on the Russian aggression against Ukraine while India had been “somewhat shaky” within the Quad.

“The virtual meeting will enable both sides to continue their regular and high-level engagement aimed at further strengthening the bilateral Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership,” the external affairs ministry said in a brief statement.

White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said Biden intended to use the meeting to “continue our close consultations on the consequences of Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine and mitigating its destabilising impact on global food supply and commodity markets”. (ANI)
