Vastavam web: Sky is the limit for the US-India relationship and President Donald Trump is keen to see the two countries doing more together, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has said.Haley’s remarks came during her luncheon meeting with the Indian Ambassador to the US, Navtej Singh Sarna, at his residence on Tuesday.”It makes sense for the two democracies, having so much in common values to work together,” the Indian-American diplomat said.
Haley, 46, is the first ever Cabinet-ranking Indian- American in any US presidential administration.Haley said when she entered the Trump administration, she desperately wanted to see the US-India relations to be very strong “which wasn’t the case during the last two presidencies”.”I think that sky’s the limit now. We are going to continue to try and show the values of India to the United States and continue trying to show the values of the US to India,” she said.
Haley said Modi was aggressively pursuing reforms and changes in India.”He very much wants to streamline and do all of these reforms, that are very true for this (Trump) administration too. So I think it’s a good combination to have them (Trump- Modi) together,” Haley said.”Coming from a family of immigrants, coming from a relatively small rural town and moving so quickly to hold the post of governor was in itself a huge achievement,” said Sarna.Haley before her posting at the UN had served as the governor of South Carolina.
