This was the first interaction between the two leaders after Democrat Biden defeated incumbent president Donald Trump in the US presidential election.
“Spoke to US President-elect @JoeBiden on phone to congratulate him. We reiterated our firm commitment to the Indo-US strategic partnership and discussed our shared priorities and concerns – Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, and cooperation in the Indo-Pacific Region,” Modi said in a tweet.
The prime minister also congratulated US Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
“Her success is a matter of great pride and inspiration for members of the vibrant Indian-American community, who are a tremendous source of strength for Indo-US relations,” he said.
