-America and India will become partners in a positive vision for a shared future
Washington (EMS). US President Joe Biden has raised the issue of human rights and freedom of the press in his meeting with Modi. Speaking to reporters on his arrival in Vietnam, he said that apart from the important trade agreements reached at the recently concluded G20 in India, India will be able to create a rail-ship economic corridor spanning from India to Europe. In his bilateral meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he raised issues such as the importance of respecting human rights, the important role of civil society and the free press. At a press conference in Hanoi on the second leg of his tour to India and Vietnam, Biden was also asked about China and President Xi Jinping, who did not attend the G20 meeting. This was the reason why Biden was surrounded by questions about Ukraine. In his opening remarks, Biden thanked Modi for his leadership and hospitality and for hosting the G20.
Biden said he and Modi had substantial discussions about how we will continue to strengthen the partnership between India and the United States, building on the prime minister’s visit to the White House last June. Biden met Modi with a traditional state dinner. He hosted the state visit of , a first for an Indian Prime Minister. Biden further said that as I always do, I raised with Mr. Modi the importance of respect for human rights and the important role of civil society and the free press in building a strong and prosperous country. It may be possible that the former US President is already trying to suppress the issue, about which the American press has been regularly asking him and his officials.
Let us tell you that in the rare press conference held with Prime Minister Modi and President Biden during the visit in June, two questions were asked to Modi. US officials have said they have not hesitated to raise these issues with their Indian counterparts, but not in the manner of one country preaching to another, but as a shared challenge, a reference to former President Donald Trump and He has been convicted in two separate cases of efforts by his supporters to subvert the 2020 presidential election and the January 6 insurrection. Regarding the G20 meetings, the US President said, this is to address the climate crisis, to strengthen food security and education, to advance global health and health security.
