Indo-US ties ‘extremely strong’, can overcome any obstacle: Jaishankar

NEW DELHI: Amid concerns over trade issues between India and the US, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar on Monday expressed confidence that the two countries have an “extremely strong” relationship and  can overcome any obstacle.

Jaishankar, while speaking at the US-India strategic partnership forum here, said there will be issues with the US because it has made trade issues much more central to its foreign policy, but they can be worked out through dialogue.

“I am very confident that the relationship is today extremely strong. Look at the trade numbers, visa numbers, every number is good,” he said.

“I don’t see any obstacle that can’t be overcome between the United States and India,” he said. (AGENCIES)
