    India-US relations in coming years

    Now Joe Biden is going to be the next President of America, then this question naturally rises in which direction US - India relation will go , especially, when it's very well known to the world that Indian PM asked Indian community in US to vote for Trump . He also welcomed him in Namaste Trump held in India. This bromance might have irritated Democrates. Joe Biden is opposite to Donald Trump as a politician. He condemned NRC & CAA when CAA was passed by parliament. Vice President Kamla Haris is emphatically vocal about Kashmir. When she was asked about imprisonment of Kashmiri leaders she said :"They are not alone, and we are all watching because so often when we see human rights abuses...".

    Abrogation of article 370 or imprisonment of Kashmiri leaders or CAA/NRC are internal issues of India, neither US nor other countries have any right to butt in such issues.

    In this scenario what we can expect is a big question which, hopefully, will be answered in due course of time. It shouldn't be ignored that giving any statement as a senator is far different from the statement of the President or Vice President. What both of them will state when they hold the highest office in government will decide their foreign policy with India. If they interfere in our internal matter then India will have to reply them as the UPA government gave strong reply to US government by dismantling secruriry barriers outside of US embassy in New Delhi and revoking all special previlges from their US Embassy. when Devyani Khobragade, a deputy consul general at the Indian Consulate in New York was arrested by New York police.

    India is a big market for the world. US would not like to lose this vast market. It's also a fact that in politics there is no permanent friend or enemy but permanent interests.

    It doesn't matter whoever comes as the US President, the India-US relations will remain intact. Because both need each others hands to sail smoothly. In 2016 elections, most of the Indians wanted Hillary Clinton to become the President, because for Indians Trump looked like anti-Indian and in the initial phases, he behaved in a similar manner because of which most of the Indians feared staying in the US. But over a period, he looked like more pro-Indian. Same is going to happen this time with Joe Biden also. No need to worry about who is at the helm of affairs.

    I agree with Bhuvan. Good relations between these two countries is the requirement for both countries. So I think the relationship that is existing now will continue without any change. When Donald wanted to negotiate between India and Pakistan in Kashmir issue, irrespective of the good relations our government differed their intervention in a very clear way.
    So both the countries may continue the same status as it is very much needed. Initially, there may be some slow down. But leaders will continue contacting each other and finally come out with an understanding and continue the same relations.
    I don't think that the USA may not go against India and favour Pakistan or China. China is a common enemy for both the countries and Pakistan is a friendly country of China. So the USA may not go against our country. Otherwise, their hold on Asis may come down.

    always confident

    Why everybody is having apprehensions about India and US future relations as both countries have their responsibility and commitments towards their people and the Trump administration agreements with Modi govt cannot be changed or reviewed but there can be wait and watch approach from both sides as the new foreign policies are not yet announced and by the way India is in good books of US and Indian Americans overwhelmingly voted the new govt to power and therefore Biden Administration cannot be harsh on our country and there would be compromise , give and take policy.

    Just now I came across the new first list of the Biden govt that they are going to concentrate on Covid action plan and take remedial action to stop the spread and also reach out to those families who lost near and dear ones during the pandemic. The second priority to revive the falling economy and create new job opportunities as many lost jobs and could not withstand the onslaught of the pandemic challenge. The third priority would be for the climate change activities which has keep kept on back burner by the Trump govt. So the message is clear to the world and India that most of the foreign policies would be continuing and as far as India is concerned even the President Biden is having connection with India and thus there cannot be harsh moves and measures and India would be on priority list.

    Actually, the relationship between two countries is not just the relationship between two leaders, so it is believed that after Biden's victory, the friendship of India and America will remain the same as it is today. If this remains so then some special things need to be mentioned. One of them is defense relations. We should always expect the best, so we must have faith in this, that the relations between India and America will continue to be better.
