If elected, bolstering ties with natural partner India will be high priority: Joe Biden
WASHINGTON: Democratic presidential candidate and former vice-president Joe Biden said that if he wins the November elections, strengthening relationship with India which is the US's "natural partner", will be a high priority for his administration.
"India needs to be a partner in the region for our safety's sake, and quite frankly for theirs," he said in response to a question on India-US relationship during a virtual fund raiser event.
At the fund raiser hosted by chairman and CEO of Beacon Capital Partners Alan Leventhal, the former vice president said that India and the United States were natural partners.

"That partnership, a strategic partnership, is necessary and important in our security," Biden said when asked by an attendee whether India is critical to US's national security.
Referring to his eight years as the vice president, he said, "In our administration I was proud to play a role more than a decade ago in securing Congressional approval for the US-India civil nuclear agreement, which is a big deal.".
"Helping open the door to great progress in our relationship and strengthening our strategic partnership with India was a high priority in the Obama-Biden administration and will be a high priority if I'm elected president," Biden said.
Both as the vice president and a senator from Delaware, he was a big supporter of India-US relationship.
About the November polls, Biden said that the character of the country is on the ballot. The upcoming election is the most important poll of a lifetime and that the country is currently engaged in a battle for its soul, he claimed.
Biden also slammed President Donald Trump and his administration over the handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
"Trump ignored warnings from the very beginning, refused to prepare and failed to protect the country. Not just now but throughout his presidency, undermining the very core pillars of our, what I would argue, moral and economic strength," the Democratic presidential candidate said.
The man is congenital liar. He is a raving leftist liberal who lies through his teeth. He has not taken a SINGLE pro-India stance in recent yeas, including over Kashmir, 3T and China. He is pro Limpdik Xi and pro-China. Should he be elected he will reverse the course taken by President Trump, and China would have won.
Most of the democrates including Joe Biden are taking/have taken anti India stand on Kashmirnissue as they too teying to woe Muslim vote babks. Trump is better then such anti India folks.
