When Secretary of State John Kerry and newly-elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi met in New Delhi on August 1, they talked about many topics like climate change, technology, energy, and Afghanistan. But, the most important topic was the strength of our partnership. The renewed spirit of optimism about the relationship between United States and India is undeniable. The Strategic Dialogue this week was just the beginning of what promises to be a very exciting time, with more high-level visits planned, including Prime Minister Modi’s travel to the United States in September.
To be sure, India and the United States do not agree on everything. But, the overall attitude and atmosphere is clear: The United States and India are in this together.
