US President Joe Biden will meet virtually with his counterpart Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, said a statement from the White House.

The duo are set to discuss a range of issues including the pandemic and the global economy, the BBC reports.

The statement said President Biden would also “continue our close consultations on the consequences of Russia’s brutal war against Ukraine and mitigating its destabilizing impact on global food supply and commodity markets”.

Russia is seeking new markets for its oil as western sanctions tighten the country’s economy, and India has been making use of this heavily discounted oil. It has bought around six million barrels, according to some estimates.

The Indian government has described this as “literally a drop, in a larger bucket” of its oil imports globally.
