US President Joe Biden said Monday that India was an exception among Washington's allies with its "shaky" response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Biden lauded the US-led alliance, including NATO, the European Union and key Asian partners, for its united front against President Vladimir Putin.
This includes unprecedented sanctions aimed at crippling Russia's currency, international trade and access to high-tech goods.
Addressing a meeting of US business leaders in Washington, Biden said there had been "a united front throughout NATO and in the Pacific."
"The Quad is, with the possible exception of India being somewhat shaky on some of this, but Japan has been extremely strong -- so has Australia -- in terms of dealing with Putin's aggression."
Further, Biden said that "NATO has never been stronger, more united, in its entire history than before'. Notably even as West tries to isolate Russia through sanctions, India continues to purchase oil from Russia amid decreasing prices
