Sanjeev Trivedi, New Delhi: The new US President Joe Biden was sworn in on January 20 in Washington. In addition, Antony Blinken has been entrusted with the Ministry of External Affairs in the new US government.
Even though Pakistan and China are happy about Donald Trump’s departure, the new US Secretary of State has warned the two Asian country that change of government in the US will not change the country’s policies.
In the new US government, Foreign Minister Antony Blinken said on the occasion of the confirmation of his appointment by the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations that India is a bipartisan success story. This means that the friendship between India and America is a story of both of them on different issues. This means that there is no change in changing the position of the two countries on the issues of terrorism, Pakistan, China and Indo-Pacific region.
In response to a question, he said that we are working with India so that no country in the region, including China, can challenge sovereignty. Along with this, we are also working on the concerns that we share about terrorism with each other. However, in the early talk of Antony Blinken, there were indications that the purchase of S-400 missile by Russia from India is the cause of tension in the relations between the two countries.
“During the Barack Obama administration, we also deepened cooperation with India on further information sharing, particularly in the defense procurement sector. I think the Trump administration carried this concept of an Indo-Pacific,” Antony Blinken said.
Meanwhile, General Austin in the Joe Biden administration said, “I will continue to hold the position of India’s principal defense partner and continue to build on the current strong defense cooperation to ensure that the US and India terrorists cooperate to meet common interests. I would like to deepen and broaden our defense cooperation through the Senate Security Dialogue and other regional multilateral engagements.”
