New Delhi: US Ambassador to India Richard Verma on Wednesday described Indian Muslims as "vital players" in advancing India and America's shared value and vision.

Verma was addressing a town hall at the India Islamic Cultural Center (IICC), attended by country's leading Muslim entrepreneurs, scholars, and clerics.

Noting that "the future of the US-India relationship depends on human capital," he said, "Your perspectives and contributions are the key asset for its growth", according to a release by the US embassy here.

The hour-long discussion with over 50 people representing the geographic, professional, and ideological diversity of India's vibrant Muslim communities highlighted the people-to- people role in strengthening US-India relations, it said.

Verma outlined four broad areas of ongoing US-India cooperation: clean energy and climate change; development, health, and science; economic and commercial; and defence and security.
