Joe Biden administration will place a "high priority" on continuing to strengthen the India-US relationship, his campaign said on Saturday, asserting that no common global challenge can be solved without the two countries working as responsible partners.
In a major policy document on Indian-Americans, the campaign said Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden believes there can be no tolerance for terrorism in South Asia, cross-border or otherwise, as published in NDTV.
A Biden administration will also work with India to support a rules-based and stable Indo-Pacific region in which no country, including China, is able to threaten its neighbours with impunity, it said.

"Biden will deliver on his long-standing belief that India and the United States are natural partners, and a Biden administration will place a high priority on continuing to strengthen the US-India relationship," the Biden Campaign said as Indians and 4 million Indian-Americans celebrated India's Independence Day.
"No common global challenge can be solved without India and the United States working as responsible partners," said the campaign as it released ''Joe Biden's Agenda for the Indian American Community'' policy document.
"Together, we will continue strengthening India's defense and capabilities as a counter-terrorism partner, improving health systems and pandemic response, and deepening cooperation in areas such as higher education, space exploration, and humanitarian relief," the campaign said.
The policy document comes days after former vice president Biden named Indian-origin US Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Harris, whose father is an African from Jamaica and mother an Indian, is the first-ever Black vice-presidential nominee.
