“We see it as a strong relationship. President (Joe) Biden and all levels of US government are in touch with our Indian partners or their counterparts,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean Pierre told reporters at her daily news conference. “The US relationship with India is strong. That’s what we believe,” she said in response to a question.
