India-US relationship: Having played a key role in shaping the India-US ties over the past few decades, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Tuesday (September 27) said he is very bullish about this bilateral relationship.
“So very frankly, that’s a long way of saying that I’m very bullish about that relationship,” Jaishankar told reporters at a joint news conference with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken as he responded to a question on his overall sense of the trajectory of the relationship.
“The big change that I have seen in my four decades as a diplomat was actually in the transformation of India-US relations,” he said.
“And your question – how do I see the trajectory – quite honestly, I see today a United States very international, very much more to engaging – very much more open to engaging a country like India, which is actually thinking beyond traditional alliances, which has been very effective at finding common ground with potential or actual partners,” Jaishankar said.
And a very good example of all this is actually in the Quad – the informal grouping of Australia, Japan, India and the United States.
