US President Joe Biden said the US and India will join forces to
defend rule-based order as the Asian country celebrates the 75th
anniversary of its independence from the UK, Trend reports citing
TASS.

“India and the United States are indispensable partners, and the
U.S.-India Strategic Partnership is grounded in our shared
commitment to the rule of law and the promotion of human freedom
and dignity” he said in a statement.

“I am confident that in the years ahead our two democracies will
continue to stand together to defend the rules-based order; foster
greater peace, prosperity and security for our people; advance a
free and open Indo-Pacific; and together address the challenges we
face around the world,” the statement said.

Biden said the US is home to about four million
Indian-Americans.

India is celebrating the 75th anniversary of its independence
from the UK on Monday.
