joe biden narendra modi: Joe Biden jokes about possible India connection in meeting with PM Modi: Joe Biden jokes about possible India connection in meeting with PM Modi
US President Joe Biden jokingly talked about a possible India connection during his first meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday. He said this while recounting an incident about a man with the Biden surname, who wrote him a letter in 1972 when he was first elected senator. Biden recalled being in Mumbai when he was the US Vice President in 2013, saying he was asked if he had any relatives in India.
In 1972, a letter from a person with the Biden surname was found.
The US President told that I said that I am not sure about this, but when I was elected for the first time in 1972 at the age of 29, I received a letter from Mumbai from a person with the Biden surname. He told that the next morning the press told him that there were five Bidens living in India.
Elaborating further, Biden jokingly said that there was a Captain George Biden in the East India Tea Company. Which was difficult for an Irishman to accept. I hope you get the joke. He probably stayed there and married an Indian woman.
Asked PM Modi for help in finding people with the Biden surname!
Biden said that I could never find him, so the whole purpose of this meeting is to help me solve it. At this, the hall reverberated with the laughter of everyone present in the meeting room including Prime Minister Modi.
What did Biden say?
Biden shared his experiences while referring to his Mumbai visit. Biden said that he wanted to marry a woman of Indian origin. Everyone present in the Oval Office of the White House started laughing at his statement. Biden said that I see that the seeds of expansion of Indo-US relations have been sown under your leadership. I have long believed that the US-India relationship can help us address many global challenges. In fact in 2006 when I was the Vice President, I said that by 2020 India and America will be among the closest countries in the world.
Spoke of strong partnership with India
He also said that we will continue to build our strong partnership. Biden also made reference to the Indian heritage of Vice President Kamala Harris during his address. He said that 4 million Indian-Americans make America stronger every day. I believe that the US-India can help us solve many challenges. We are witnessing a new chapter in Indo-US relations.
