On Tuesday, the US ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti, claimed that India had led the most successful G20 ever.
“India’s marvellous growth, its rapid rise, its leadership in the world today has demonstrated the most successful G20 we have ever seen,” the US Ambassador said.
Garcetti was addressing the 20th Indo-US Economic Summit “Sharing ideas & Potential for sustainable partnership between India and the US for the next 25 years” organized by the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce (IACC).
Garcetti while speaking on India-US ties, said: “The goal that we should be establishing, I think, together, is, how can we be more ambitious. Not just settle for another deal, not just settle for, as we’ve done just in the last few months, bringing down the retaliatory tariffs and the trade disputes between our countries. That’s not good enough. I think we need to close our eyes and dream of what this relationship can be like even more than we would imagine today. “
The US Ambassador congratulated India on ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3 mission.
He said: “Congratulations on a marvellous space year here in India. Landing on the dark side of the moon, doing something that only four nations have done before and doing it so beautifully, so reasonably and so successfully. But now we’re looking at commercial space together.”
On Tuesday, the US ambassador reaffirmed how seriously the US takes its connections with Canada and India.
His remarks come amid heightened hostilities between India and Canada after Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau claimed that India was responsible for the murder of Khalistani agent Hardeep Nijjar.
