India’s relationship with the United States is at its strongest in years, with President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi set to meet at the Group of 20 summit. However, the Council on Foreign Relations believes that a traditional alliance between the two countries is unlikely. India values its independence and wants to protect its ability to make its own decisions. Disagreements between the two nations include their views on the Russia-Ukraine war, with India refraining from condemning it due to its reliance on discounted Russian oil. Despite this, the partnership between India and the US will continue to strengthen, particularly in technology cooperation.
