`India`s rise to be substantial for global order`
Washington: Ahead of President Barack
Obama`s historic state visit to India, a top US diplomat has
said India`s rise would be consequential for the international
order and deeply in the interests of America.
"India`s rise may be as consequential for
international order, the future of the global economy and the
promotion of human values as any other development in the new
century unfolding before us," Under Secretary of State for
Political Affairs Bill Burns said.
He made the remarks at an awards dinner in New York
where Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was presented the 2010
`World Statesman Award` in absentia by the Appeals of
Conscience Foundation, a US-based interfaith coalition.
"Without any doubt, India`s rise is deeply in the
interests of the United States, and our stake in India`s
success grows more apparent as each day passes," Burns said
ahead of Obama`s visit to India in early November.
Burns said the US and India are united not only by
common values and shared interests, but increasingly by the
vast web of family, business, artistic and scientific ties
that transcend our borders.
"As President Obama prepares for an historic state
visit to India later this autumn, the promise of our
partnership, built on strong bipartisan foundations in both
our countries, looms bright and unmistakable," he said.
Last week, the Assistant Secretary of State for South
and Central Asia Robert Blake had described India as an
indispensable partner and said that one of the thematic topics
to be discussed during Obama`s visit would be US support
for India`s growing global role and influence.
