This is including the situation in Afghanistan, tackling climate change, the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the United States and India’s commitment towards the Indo-Pacific region.

They have also taken the point and discussed the potential cooperation in several areas that can result out of the two countries. This can result in the areas of space, technology, and health care. There may be several other results and fields that have been discussed.
The meeting with Kamala Harris is one day before the official meeting between Narendra Modi and the President of the United States, Joe Biden. It is scheduled and going to happen soon anyway.
Narendra Modi is very well versed in Hindi and he spoke in that language only at the joint meeting. At the joint meeting, Modi said that the United States and India are natural partners and that they have the sharing of similar values and geopolitical interests. He has also stated that the friendship and cooperation between the two countries are growing, and they have continued to increase each and every day.
“India, of course, is a very important partner to the United States,” Harris added. “Throughout our history, our nations have worked together, have stood together, to make our world a safer and stronger world.”
“The United States, like India, feels very strongly about the pride of being a member of the Indo-Pacific, but also the fragility and the importance and strength as well, of those relationships, including maintaining a free and open Indo-Pacific,” she said in her statement.
