Prime Minister Narendra Modi was one of the first world leaders to congratulate US President Joe Biden, soon after he was sworn in as the 46th head of the country.

“I look forward to working with him to strengthen India-US strategic partnership,” he said, in a tweet.

PM Modi also added that India and USA stood “united and resilient” in addressing common challenges in advancing global peace and security.

Earlier in November, the two leaders spoke over the phone, with both reiterating their "firm commitment to the Indo-US strategic partnership".
