US President Joe Biden has accused India of being “somewhat shaky” in its response to Russia’s attack on Ukraine, while praising the “extremely strong” reactions by other regional allies such as Japan and Australia.
Speaking to a business forum on Monday, the president suggested India has not done enough to punish Russia for its military operation, according to Reuters, comparing New Delhi to the other members of the Indo-Pacific ‘Quad’ alliance, which also comprises Washington, Tokyo, and Canberra.
Biden said the security bloc had issued “extremely strong” condemnations following Moscow’s assault on Ukraine, “with the possible exception of India being somewhat shaky on some of these [issues].”
