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.

Verma said Washington and New Delhi want an “ambitious relationship” and to become natural allies for that they need to be “firing on all cylinders”, including economic and military.

“We need a full-scale relationship, not just the defence relationship, not just the strategic relationship. We need to focus on the economic side too. We somehow need to navigate America First with Make in India,” Verma said here yesterday.
