US wants to have close relationship with Muslim world

Refraining from making any comment on the SRK detention episode, Obama Admin has said it wants to build better relationship with the Muslim world.



Washington: Refraining from making any
comment on the Shahrukh Khan detention episode, the Obama
Administration on Tuesday said it wants to build better
relationship with the Muslim world.

"I wouldn`t read anything into that (the incident
involving Shahrukh Khan at the Newark airport on Friday)...
Obviously, we want to have a close relationship with Muslims
around the world," Assistant Secretary of State for Public
Affairs P J Crowley told reporters at the daily State
Department news conference.

Crowley refused to entertain question on Shahrukh Khan
and referred to the statement issued by US Ambassador to India
Tim Roemer in New Delhi on Saturday.

As the Obama Administration gives importance to
building relationship with the Muslim world, Crowley said:
"It`s one of the reasons why the President felt strongly about
the special outreach to Muslims around the world that he did
in his speech in Cairo."

As such, Crowley said: "I think there is an ongoing
effort to obviously have policies that reflect that outreach,
but at the same time, meet our security concerns here in the
United States."
