Washington. US President Joe Biden has called Japan and India xenophobic countries that do not welcome immigrants. Putting the two on a par with rivals China and Russia, he tried to explain their economic circumstances and compared all four with the US on immigration. Biden made this comment at a fundraising event on Wednesday evening. Japan is an important ally of America. India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Despite differences on human rights, all three countries are important partners in the Indo-Pacific grouping.

Most of the donors in this fundraising campaign were Asian Americans. Biden said that the country’s economy is flourishing ‘because of you and many others’. Because we welcome immigrants. Biden said, ‘Look, think about it. Why is China stagnating so badly economically? Why is Japan having problems? Why is Russia like this? Why is India where it is? Because they are xenophobic. They don’t want immigrants.’

President Joe Biden said that ‘immigrants make us strong. This is not a joke. This is not an exaggeration, because we have an influx of workers who want to stay here and want to contribute.’ There was no immediate response from the Japanese or Indian government. At the same time, White House National Security Spokesperson John Kirby said that Biden was making a broad point about the US stance on immigration.

America and Russia clash in UN, clash over deployment of nuclear weapons in the sky, whose support did China support?

Japan has acknowledged its declining population issues and the number of babies born in the country in 2023 fell for the eighth consecutive year, according to data released in February. Meanwhile, India’s population has become the world’s largest, with the United Nations saying it is on track to reach 1.42 billion. Its population is also aging. Earlier this year, India enacted a new citizenship law that provides for citizenship for Hindus, Parsis, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and Christians who fled Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan to India. But it excludes Muslims, who are the majority in all three countries.
