The top official of the campaign for Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden in the US presidential election has said that the Biden administration will advocate India’s leading role in international institutions and help India become a member after reforming the UN Security Council.
Former diplomat and Biden’s top foreign policy adviser Tony Blinken said the Biden administration would adopt a policy of not tolerating terrorism in South Asia at all. During the discussion on the topic ‘Indian-American and US-India Relations in Joe Biden Administration’, Blinken said that if Biden wins the election, he will help India get a seat on the Security Council and India and America’s defense relations Will strengthen
He said in response to a question by Richard Verma, former US ambassador to India, that he believes Joe Biden will work as president and with close allies like India. Blinken was questioned as to how the world is witnessing Chinese aggression on the Indo-Pacific region and the Indian border and that India is facing threats of cross-border terrorism, so how will the Biden administration in the US support India.
He said that in the Obama administration, we played an important role in establishing India as an important ally of the Indo-Pacific strategy. Blinken said, “There is a need to extend this role beyond the region to the whole world.” In the Biden administration we would advocate that India play a leading role in international institutions. These include reforming the UN Security Council and helping India get a seat in it.
He said, “We will work together to strengthen India’s capabilities as a partner of India and against terrorism.” Blinken said the Biden administration would adopt a policy of not tolerating terrorism at all, including South Asia.
