Speaking at the meet, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said: "I have known you for a long time. I am glad that you have come back to the White House. You are well aware of our history.

Modi also thanked Biden for the warm welcome he had received at the White House. "Seeds that we will be sowing in the first year of the third decade of the 21st century will help grow the Indo-US ties. It will also prove transformative for democracies around the world." AFP

We can take positive action. After assuming change you have taken very unique initiatives on climate change, COVID-19 pandemic and Quad. AFP
