U.S. President Joe Biden held talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The parties discussed a number of important issues, in particular the development of bilateral cooperation.
Further cooperation is necessary to promote an open Indo-Pacific region. In particular, to strengthen the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue with Australian and Japanese authorities, ensuring freedom of navigation and territorial integrity.
Politicians also discussed confronting coronavirus, counterterrorism, climate and economic issues. Biden and Modi concluded unequivocally on the importance of close cooperation on all key issues.
“They also strongly agreed that the rule of law and the democratic process in Myanmar must be respected,” the White House press office noted.
At issue is the imposition of a state of emergency by the Myanmar military on Feb. 1 and the removal of the country’s leadership. Officials arrested the “top” of the government, including the president and the state councilor.
