NEW DELHI:  The Joe Biden administration has announced that the Homeland Security Dialogue, which had been discontinued by the Donald Trump government, will be re-established.

According to the statement, Mayorkas and Sandhu highlighted the positive engagement between the two countries during the Biden administration. The readout also mentioned the Quad meeting which addresses major commitments to cooperate on Covid-19, climate change and cyber security.
