US President Joe Biden is considering the name of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti as Ambassador to India. Citing people related to the case, American news website Axius said, “Garcetti is among those whose names are being considered for this position.”
Garcetti, who was co-chairman of Biden’s campaign in the presidential election, said in December that he had not spoken to a position offered by the administration to be mayor of Los Angeles. The report of Axius said that if Garcetti was appointed as the US ambassador to India, he would take up this position at a time when this country, with a population of 1.36 billion, is grappling with growing Corona affairs.
Biden has not taken the final decision regarding the appointment
Axius said in its report that Biden was handed a list of potential ambassadors in March, but no final decision has yet been taken on the appointment. The Biden administration has indicated that India will play an important role in helping counter China’s ambitions in the Indo-Pacific region. In March, President Biden held a meeting with the Quad leaders to plan to deal with China’s growing dominance in the Indo-Pacific.
Mayor’s term will end in 2022
At one time, Eric Garcetti himself was planning to join the presidential race. Please tell that Garcetti was re-elected Mayor of Los Angeles in March 2017. In this way, the public once again gave them an opportunity to serve themselves for five and a half years. Thus, his tenure is going to end in 2022. In such a situation, he has a tenure of one and a half years left. In recent times, Garcetti has also had to face increasing protests in the city.
America came forward to help India in the Corona crisis
Relations between India and the United States have strengthened in recent years. In such a situation, if Eric Garcetti is appointed as Ambassador to India, he will need to take this bilateral relationship forward. Significantly, in the worsening situation of Corona, America has extended a helping hand towards India. Every day a large number of medical supplies are reaching India from America. Biden has also promised to provide possible help to India.
