India, US Cannot Be Fighting On Trade Issues But Cooperating On Defence: Us Ambassador To India


India and the US cannot be “fighting every day on trade issues” while cooperating on defence, former US Ambassador to India Richard Verma has said, highlighting the need to “fire on all cylinders” to move ahead of their strategic relations.
