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.
