IIE Digital Desk : Eric Garcetti made the remarks during a speech at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi on Tuesday. He said that Biden has a "deep personal connection" to India and that he sees the country as a "key partner" in addressing global challenges. Garcetti also said that Biden is committed to strengthening the US-India relationship and that he has asked him to "work closely" with the Indian government on a range of issues, including climate change, economic cooperation, and security.

The US ambassador's remarks come at a time when the US and India are seeking to deepen their ties. The two countries are working together on a number of initiatives, including the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF), which is a new economic bloc that aims to promote trade and investment in the Indo-Pacific region.

The US and India are also cooperating on security issues, such as countering terrorism and maritime security. The Biden administration's focus on India is a significant shift from the previous Trump administration, which had a more transactional approach to the relationship. The Biden administration sees India as a key partner in its efforts to build a more resilient and inclusive Indo-Pacific region.
