Deepening ties with India is strategic imperative: John Kerry

Noting that deepening America\\\'s ties with India is a strategic imperative, US Secretary of State John Kerry today said time has come to transform bilateral relationship into a historic partnership that can create a more prosperous future for the world.

Noting that deepening America's ties with India is a strategic imperative, US Secretary of State John Kerry today said time has come to transform bilateral relationship into a historic partnership that can create a more prosperous future for the world.

 

Laying out a roadmap for a long-term strategic partnership between the largest and oldest democratic countries, Kerry said, "This is a potentially transformative moment in our relationship with India."

 

Kerry was referring to the post-election scenario and the formation of the new government in India.

 

"This is the moment to transform our strategic relationship into a historic partnership. This can be a moment where our destinies converge. US and India can create a more prosperous future for the world," he said ahead of his visit to New Delhi tomorrow to co-chair the fifth India-US Strategic Dialogue with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj on July 31.

 

Noting that the India-US ties is yet to "blossom" together, Kerry said, "The US and India can and should be indispensable partners for the 21st century. The dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit of our relationship is needed to solve some of world's greatest challenges."

 

He said the two countries can work together to tackle global challenges from climate change to clean energy and others.

 

Kerry in his speech supported India's vision of an integrated South and Central Asia and that with the South East Asia.

 

The Obama Administration is ready to help India in this regard, Kerry said as he praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his initiatives to establish peace and improve relationship with the neighbouring countries.

 

By inviting Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to his inauguration, Kerry said Modi has taken the "first step" to establish peace and friendship with its South Asian neighbour.

 

Supporting the move to increase India-Pak economic relationship, Kerry said improved trade is a win-win for both the countries.

 

Reiterating support for India's place in the UN Security Council, Kerry in his speech said India is a global power.

 

The Secretary of State listed out the progress made between the two countries in various areas including economy, clean energy, and counter-terrorism.

 

The India-US collaboration on counter terrorism, in particular real-time information sharing, helps confront common threats and bring terrorists to justice, he said.

 

Describing climate change as a biggest challenge not only for the world, but also India, Kerry called for increased collaboration between the two countries on this issue.

 

Kerry said US President Barack Obama would welcome the Indian Prime Minister at the White House in November. 

 

Kerry will be accompanied by the US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker, as well as other members of the inter-agency, including Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security and NASA during his visit to New Delhi.

 

The trip will mark the first US cabinet-level visit to New Delhi since Modi took over office.
