India-US relationship like ISRO's lunar mission: Jaishankar
It is almost impossible to define India's relationship with the US. India's External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said the same at an event for Indians living in the United States.
He also said that these two countries now see each other as 'favorable, best, pleasant partners'.
Jaishankar said at the program of expatriate Indians in Washington, "I am often asked that where the relationship between these two countries is going?" It is difficult for me to define the limits of this relationship or express expectations about it because, this relationship exceeded all expectations in all aspects. That is why today I do not try to define the relationship between the two countries. We are gradually increasing the level of this relationship.
According to NDTV, Jaishankar held a meeting with US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, administration officials and industrialists this week.
In this context, he said, 'India and the United States need to work together. It is important for Washington to have a relationship with those who speak well and think well about the United States.
According to him, we are looking for new fields. The more we do this together, the more successful we will be. Like ISRO's Chandrayaan, India-US relations have reached new heights.'
A few days ago, the G-20 summit was completed in New Delhi. The US also helped make the conference a success.
Jaishankar said this in a program organized at the Indian Embassy in Washington. He said that the help that the United States has given to make this conference a success should be said in front of everyone.
Jaishankar also rejected Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's allegations while sitting in the United States.
Trudeau alleged that Indian agents were behind the killing of Khalistani leader Hardeep Singh Nijjar in Canada. In this context, Jaishankar said, "This is not India's policy."
New Delhi has suspended visa services for Canadian citizens amid India-Canada diplomatic standoff. Jaishankar also opened up about it in Washington.
He said, 'There was an obligation. Misinformation was being spread about our diplomats, embassies. How will they go to the office to issue visas? It is a question of law and order. The question of the Vienna Convention. According to the Vienna agreement, we have to provide security to our diplomats and embassies.
