‘Great democracies’ India and US are indispensable partners: Joe Biden

US President Joe Biden said that the Strategic Partnership with India is grounded in shared commitment to the rule of law and the promotion of human freedom and dignity

India and the United States are indispensable partners, US President Joe Biden said in a message celebrating India’s 75th anniversary of independence.

"I am confident that in the years ahead our two democracies will continue to stand together to defend the rules-based order; foster greater peace, prosperity and security for our people; advance a free and open Indo-Pacific; and together address the challenges we face around the world," Biden said in a statement released by the White House earlier today.

The US President mentioned that India and the United States – both "great democracies" – remain indispensable partners.

"The US-India Strategic Partnership is grounded in our shared commitment to the rule of law and the promotion of human freedom and dignity. Our partnership is further strengthened by the deep bonds between our people. The vibrant Indian-American community in the United States has made us a more innovative, inclusive, and stronger Nation," he said.

"As people around the world, including nearly four million proud Indian-Americans, celebrate the 75th anniversary of India’s independence on August 15, the United States joins the people of India to honor its democratic journey, guided by Mahatma Gandhi’s enduring message of truth and non-violence," Biden added. 

Emmanuel Macron, President of France, too wished PM Modi on Independence Day, stating that India can always count on France. 

"Dear friend @NarendraModi, dear people of India, congratulations on your Independence Day! As you proudly celebrate India’s stunning achievements in the past 75 years, you can count on France to always stand by your side.
