The Understanding

  2. Biden played a key role, both as Chair of the Senate Relations Committee and later as Vice President, in strengthening formal cooperation with India.

  4. Biden was one of the key advocates for strengthening Indo-US cooperation, especially in strategic areas. At that time, the US officially announced its support for India’s membership in the newly formed and expanded United Nations Security Council.
  5. Obama-Biden’s management also called India a “Major Defense Partner”, which made it easier to share advanced and sensitive technology with India to strengthen security ties.
  6. This was important because it was the first time that any country had been given this position, apart from the traditional US unity program.
  7. In August 2016, both sides signed a Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) for Logistics Exchange, the first of the “basic points” of deep military cooperation.
  8. With Democrats seemingly more liberal to immigrants, Biden is expected to be more inclined to Indians to the US to study, work and live there, and aspire to a better life.

He also promised to bring back the process of making natural green cards.
  10. Over the past 20 years, every US President has had differences over many issues, but if there is one common ground they all agree on this: a strong relationship with India.
