New Delhi: Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar on Monday said that the ties between India and the United States are currently in a 'transition mode', calling on both countries to be 'bolder' in their bilateral relations.

Speaking at a seminar in the national capital, the former India Ambassador to the US said that there was a need to move away from what he termed as the 'post-World War II political order'. Jaishankar also highlighted former US president Bill Clinton's stand on the Kargil war, as well as his successor George Bush's position on the nuclear deal, referring to them as 'welcome departures from the past'.

Expressing his satisfaction with the defence cooperation between New Delhi and Washington DC, Jaishankar opined that the Indo-Pacific region was an area where both nations could express commonalities.
