NEW DELHI – the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, says she sees opportunities in the development of stronger ties with India in multiple ways, especially in the fight against terrorism and military cooperation.
Haley says her two-day visit to India is aimed at the strengthening of the partnership between the two countries.
Haley, the South Carolina-born daughter of Indian immigrants, told reporters in New Delhi on Wednesday that both countries have a willingness to strengthen their cooperation.
US-India relations have generally prospered in the past ten years, partly due to the countries’ shared concerns about the rise of China. Both sides share the goals of safety, free navigation, free trade and the fight against terrorism in the Indo-Pacific.
Haley is scheduled to meet the prime Minister Narendra Modi and external Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj later Wednesday.
