Washington, Jun 18: While speaking at the USIBC Summit, the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made sure she touched upon about everything involving India. In the US-India Business Council's (USIBC) Synergies Summit whihc was held on Wednesday, Jun 17 Clinton declared that 'India was one of the key partners world wide who will help shape the 21st century'.
Clinton said that she would visit India soon and promised to work for 'dramatic expansion' of the Indo-US ties.
“We find ourselves at the beginning of a third era. I will call it US-India 3.0. The new governments in Washington and New Delhi will build this future together. And we will be discussing the details of that partnership, when I visit India next month," Clinton said.
Calling the Indo-US nuclear deal a 'landmark agreement' for both the nations, Clinton said that the Obama agreement was committed to implement the pact. She also took time to praise the resumption of dialogue between India and Pakistan.
Interestingly, Clinton played down the growth of US protectionism in the recent times by rationalising it, saying that Americans only feared that Indians were taking away their jobs.
