"You will recall that the prime minister had congratulated then President elect Biden on his election on November 8 and this was followed by a telephone call between the two on November 17 during which both the prime minister and President Biden affirmed their interest in working together to strengthen the Indo-US comprehensive global partnership," he said.

He was replying to questions on the future course of the Indo-US ties under the Biden presidency.

"On January 20, after President assumed charge, Prime Minister Modi had sent him best wishes ...As the new administration takes shape we will continue to remain engaged at all levels and work together to further consolidate the vibrant and multifaceted bilateral relationship and work together on global challenges of common interests," Srivastava said.
