New York, April 27: United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley discussed with her Indian counterpart Syed Akbaruddin the economic and anti-corruption reforms undertaken by India to spur growth and measures to strengthen Indo-US partnership at the world body.

"They discussed peacekeeping reform and India's economic and anti-corruption reforms that have helped businesses and spurred growth," according to a statement issued by the US mission to the United Nations.

Akbaruddin said, "We shared perspectives on how to work together at UN in line with growing India-US ties."

Indian-American Haley, who was the governor of South Carolina before being appointed by President Donald Trump as Washington's envoy to the UN, has quickly garnered a reputation at the world body for being tough-talking and blunt.

Earlier this month, Haley had said that the US would try and 'find its place' in efforts to de-escalate Indo-Pak tensions and that Trump could play a role in such endeavours.

India had swiftly rejected any US role in resolving Indo-Pak issues, saying the government's position for 'bilateral redressal of all India-Pakistan issues in an environment free of terror and violence hasn't changed'.
