The historic inauguration of Kamala Harris as America's vice president has further cemented the importance of the relationship between the United States and India, according to a top White House official. Born to a Jamaican father and an Indian mother, 56-year-old Kamala Harris made history on Wednesday when she was sworn in as the first female, first Black, and first Asian-American US vice-president. The former senator from California was sworn in just before Joe Biden took the oath of office to become the 46th President of the United States. Addressing reporters at a daily news conference on Thursday, the White House Press Secretary said President Biden respects the long bipartisan successful relationship between the two countries. The historic inauguration of Indian-origin Kamala Harris, the official said, further cements this relationship.
