I would propose to you that this is something structural, that there is a deep convergence between India and the US,” Indian foreign minister S. Jaishankar said about Indo-US relations last month.
“If you look at the American end, you have four presidents (Bill) Clinton, (George W.) Bush, (Barack) Obama, and (Donald) Trump, I can’t think of four different individuals with four very different policies. Yet all of them have been remarkably consistent in the priority that they have given to this relationship,” Jaishankar told the Bloomberg India Economic Forum 2020.
“You see a very strong continuity in fact, not just continuity, you would see the (US-India) relationship has steadily grown,” he said.
This is the foundation that India will hope to consolidate on, irrespective of whether a Republican or a Democrat comes to occupy the White House in January 2021.
