PM speaks to US President-elect Joe Biden, congratulates him for his win
NEW DELHI: Prime minister Narendra Modi had his first phone conversation with US president-elect Joe Biden Tuesday night, setting the immediate priorities for the India-US relationship under the new president.
In a tweet, Modi said, “Spoke to US President-elect @JoeBiden on phone to congratulate him. We reiterated our firm commitment to the Indo-US strategic partnership and discussed our shared priorities and concerns - Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, and cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region."
According to an official readout, Modi warmly congratulated President-elect Biden on his election, describing it as a testament to the strength and resilience of de ratic traditions in the United States.
Climate change is back on the India US agenda under Biden. But equally important from India's perspective is the continuing focus on the Indo Pacific.
Modi also went on to congratulate the new US vice-president Kamala Harris.“I also conveyed warm congratulations for VP-elect @KamalaHarris. Her success is a matter of great pride and inspiration for members of the vibrant Indian-American community, who are a tremendous source of strength for Indo-US relations."
The leaders agreed to work closely to further advance the India-U.S. Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership, built on shared values and common interests. The leaders also discussed their priorities, including containing the Covid-19 pandemic, promoting access to affordable vaccines, tackling climate change, and cooperation in the Indo-Pacific Region.

People making snide remarks, don't even know D of diplomacy.
PM Modi is bold and he has taken a step to signal India’s intent to realign with a new US administration. This is in India’s best interest.
Modi is Tall Global leader , his diplomatic maneuvers are complex and efficient keeping Bharat's interest very high.
Modi is The most stupid STATESMAN of the planet.
Now PM Modi have to be very very careful as Donald Trump has already gone and Joe Biden is the new president.
Chaiwalla should offer some chai pakoda to Biden .
Pappu will protest by taking Double Dose of ganja.. why Biden didn't speak to him..
To everyone commenting hard on PM, it is quite natural for India PM to talk to US president elect. So do not blame PM on this. There is nothing personal here. The leadership changed, so we adopt a new leadership.
Modi the great single handedly brouggt down India's economy and India's standing in the world!!!!
First of all Harris is not an Indo-American. She is an American born and brought up there.Next is her views on India, particularly on Kashmir.India should be very careful about this.
Actually he was taking appointment to meet
Modiji got a new friend "JOE BINDDEEN ". DOLAAND TRUMP will be forgotten soon.
Did he talked to buden in english ?
Biden is not a fool like Trump to believe the pappi Jhappi ta tics of this street smart Feku liar. He will keep him at an arms length.
what if Trump proves voting was rigged and he is reinstated back as President?
Biden has more India - US diplomacy experience than tea seller. Remember he was VP for 8 years.
Biden knows very well about the caliber of this Modi. He also knows the stuff Modi possesses to the extent 'aadhmanirbhar' and his connection with nut Trump
Trump is history in 70 days so there's no choice.
