WASHINGTON: Democratic presi ntial candidate and former vice-presi nt Joe Biden said that if he wins the November ions, strengthening relationship with India which is the US's "natural partner", will be a high priority for his administration.

"That partnership, a strategic partnership, is necessary and important in our security," Biden said when asked by an attendee whether India is critical to US's national security.
Referring to his eight years as the vice presi nt, he said, "In our administration I was proud to play a role more than a decade ago in securing Congressional approval for the US-India civil nuclear agreement, which is a big deal.".
"Hel open the door to great progress in our relationship and strengthening our strategic partnership with India was a high priority in the Ob-Biden administration and will be a high priority if I'm ed presi nt," Biden said.
Both as the vice presi nt and a senator from Delaware, he was a big supporter of India-US relationship.
About the November polls, Biden said that the character of the country is on the ballot. The upcoming ion is the most important poll of a lifetime and that the country is currently engaged in a battle for its soul, he cmed.
Biden also s mmed Presi nt Donald Trump and his administration over the handling of the coronavir s pandemic.
"Trump ignored warnings from the very begng, refused to prepare and failed to prect the country. Not just now but throughout his presidency, undermining the very core pillars of our, what I would argue, moral and economic strength," the Democratic presi ntial candidate said.
The man is congenital liar. He is a raving leftist liberal who lies through his teeth. He has not taken a SINGLE pro-India stance in recent yeas, including over Kashmir, 3T and . He is pro Limpdik and pro-. Should he be ed he will reverse the course taken by Presi nt Trump, and would have won.
Most of the democrates including Joe Biden are taking/have taken anti India stand on Kashmirnissue as they too teying to woe Mus m ve babks. Trump is better then such anti India folks.

Indians should go with Trump. This person is called Beg Biden there.
Trump is mentally retarded
he will become a puppet...please ve wisely..the Democrats will destroy US
All Indo-American must remember before casting thier ve that he is pro and is symphthatic to leftist hence a very untrustworthy
Biden will be never as good as Trump is for India
John K V
yes sir. Trump and Modi are friends and will remain forever
A victory for Trump will be best for India
Trump is better than any US presi nts he doesn't back foot decisions .
3 days ago he was concerned about h an ri hts in Kashmir...then his advisor must have told him....bhai Indians ke ve gaye....today he changed...arre hum India se hain ... raajneeti poori samjhte hain.
Liberals can never be trusted. Specifically, Baiden is a habitual liar. Trump is not a great person but able to provide bold leadership which is the need of the hour. Trump should be ed again.
Sorry Mr.Biden...You are a agent of .Presi nt Trump will be the first choice of Indians
Dont trust him. He is pro is mic liberal. Choice for 2020 is a really difficult one. US is all set to again become the laughing stock on the world.
First, let him take back his words what he spoke ag inst India. Democrats passed a bill ag inst India too.
No. 1 liar. Raised Kashmir issue few days ago and now giving this statement. He should not be trusted. Persons of Indian Origin in USA, please do not ve for him, Trump has demonstrated that he is pro India and has supported India
Trump is a better bet for India & the world.
The Democrats of the US never supported Indian causes, but most of them are anti-Indians. Joe Biden never uttered a word in support of India during his tenure as vice presi nt. If India is in partnership with the US in business, economy, trade and military will strengthen India. If it is democrats or republicans, we should be in a good relationship.
You are going to fail to ally India if you have a different narrative on Kashmir.
Liar. Just few days back this utterly shameless man was talking about India "violating" s of people in Kashmir and even Assam. He knows that the Indian American community is very powerful so he's making a last minute effort to woo them.
