The Obama-Biden administration named India as a "Major Defense Partner" in 2016 that allowed India to be treated on par with other close partners of the United States in terms of access to advance and sensitive military technologies.

Obama-Biden administration had also supported India's claim to permanent membership of the UNSC and call for co-operation to fight terrorism underlining that "there can be no tolerance for terrorism in South-Asia -- cross border or otherwise".

In his campaign documents this year, Biden reiterated his vision for the US-India partnership.
