US President Joe Biden is expected to visit India in September this year, marking his first trip to the country since taking office earlier this year. The announcement was made by Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Donald Lu, who noted that 2023 would be a significant year for the India-US relationship.

Lu stated that India's leadership in the G-20 would expand its capacity to serve as a force for good in the world. Additionally, he highlighted the leadership roles taken on by other members of the QUAD, including the United States hosting APEC, Japan hosting the G7, and India hosting the G-20.

In an interview with news agency PTI on Thursday, Lu expressed enthusiasm for the future of the India-US relationship, saying "We're really excited about what's to come in the next few months."

The Assistant Secretary of State also noted that several exciting events had already taken place this year, despite being only three months in. Biden's visit to India is expected to further cement the relationship between the two countries and set the stage for a productive partnership in the years to come.
