India will continue to be strategic partner: US

India has been and will continue to be a strategic partner of the US, an American official said.



Washington: India has been and will continue to be a strategic partner of the US, an American official said on Tuesday, asserting that Secretary of State John Kerry is looking forward to continuing the positive bilateral relationship.

Kerry, who travelled to India during his just concluded Asia trip, "enjoyed every aspect of his visit," State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki told reporters.

"He had some very productive meetings as part of the India Strategic Dialogue. He also gave a speech there about the importance of climate change and elevating that as a global issue," she said at her daily news conference.

"He even had the opportunity to go to the Lodi Gardens while it was hot out. He really enjoyed how beautiful and historic that site was," she said.

"As you know, India has been and will continue to be an important strategic partner, and I know he is grateful he was able to spend a couple of days there, and he`s looking forward to continuing the positive relationship," Psaki said.
