New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today tweeted his congratulations to Joe Biden who just took oath as the 46th President of the United States. In a series of tweets, he said India will work with the United States to ensure global peace and security and take the partnership between the two nations to greater heights.

“My warmest congratulations to Joe Biden on his assumption of office as the President of United States of America. I look forward to working with him to strengthen India-US strategic partnership,” his tweet read.

“My best wishes for a successful term in leading USA as we stand united and resilient in addressing common challenges and advancing global peace and security,” a second tweet read.

The India-US partnership is based on “shared values”, read a third post from PM Modi. “We have a substantial and multifaceted bilateral agenda, growing economic engagement and vibrant people to people linkages. Committed to working with President @JoeBiden to take the India-US partnership to even greater heights,” he added.

The change of guard at the White House took place today after weeks of tussle with outgoing Republican President Donald Trump who insisted that he was the real winner of the Presidential election that took place in November. Violence broke out at the Capitol — unprecedented in US history — as he gave a speech in January 6 urging his supporters to march on the Congress.

Within days, he was impeached for a second time by the House of Representatives — another first in the US history — for  “incitement of insurrection” against the Capitol.

The new Democrat President plans to begin by unravelling a bunch of policies of Donald Trump — including immigration, climate, US withdrawals from the Paris Agreement and the World Health Organization — stop the construction of a border wall and put in place a range of measures to control coronavirus which has hit US the hardest.
