US NSA to visit India to discuss future Indo – US relations


Washington: US National Security Advisor (NSA) Jake Sullivan will visit India to interact with the new government after Prime Minister Narendra Modi takes office for the third consecutive term.

When President Joe Biden called Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday to congratulate him on the NDA’s victory in the Lok Sabha elections, he also discussed Sullivan’s visit.

The White House said in a statement, “President Joseph Biden Jr. called Prime Minister Narendra Modi to congratulate him and the National Democratic Alliance on his victory in India’s general elections.” The statement said that the two leaders emphasized their commitment to strengthen US-India relations and global strategic cooperation and to advance their shared vision of an independent, free and prosperous Indo-Pacific region.

President Joe Biden praised the friendship between India and the US in a post on X. Other senior members of the US administration, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken, also congratulated PM Modi.

The Prime Minister, responding to President Biden’s post, said he was happy to receive a call from his “friend”.

Though Sullivan’s visit has been announced, the date is not yet fixed. He is expected to visit New Delhi within a few days of the Prime Minister’s swearing-in. PM Modi is likely to take oath for the third time on June 8.

The White House statement said, “By casting their votes despite the scorching heat this year, the people of India have once again demonstrated their commitment to the democratic process.”
