India is a major foreign policy priority for the United States. We consider India to be a crucial global partner for the United States in the 21st century.

We have come a long way together in recent years, including, in particular, the Civil Nuclear Agreement which was a very significant accomplishment. But I am convinced that there is a great deal more that we can do together. Thank you very much.
