The partnership between India and the United States is rooted in their shared responsibility to uphold democratic values, the White House said on Tuesday as it greeted the people of India on the occasion of the country’s 73rd Republic Day. “We join India, the world’s largest democracy, in honoring Republic Day, the day that marks the adoption of India’s Constitution,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.

“As President (Joe) Biden said when India’s Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi visited the White House last September, the relationship between India and the United States is destined to be stronger, closer and tighter, and it can benefit the whole world,” she said.

“Our partnership is rooted in our shared responsibility to uphold democratic values,” Psaki said in response to a question.

In a tweet, the US State Department’s South and Central Asia Bureau said: “Happy 73rd Republic Day India! As millions of Indians celebrate their vibrant Constitution today, we are reminded of our nations’ shared democratic values and the strength of the US-India strategic partnership.”

Congressman Eric Swalwell congratulated India and Indian Americans on the occasion of India’s Republic Day.

“India and the United States make up the world’s oldest and the world’s biggest democracies. And our shared partnership, a belief in democracy, the rule of law, humanity, charity and making sure that human rights are carried out not just in our own countries but across the globe is what makes our partnership so special,” he said.
