Vowing to expand the India-US “global strategic partnership for a better world”, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and President Barack Obama have set an agenda in five key areas ranging from countering terrorism to stimulating global economic revival. “President Obama stated the United States looks forward to a stable and prosperous India playing an increasingly important role in world affairs,” said a joint statement issued Tuesday after their summit meeting in the Oval Office amid the glitz and glamour of a state visit, the first of the Obama presidency. The two leaders “reaffirmed the global strategic partnership between India and the United States, and launched a new phase in this partnership,” it said as “they committed to build upon the India-US Strategic Dialogue announced in July 2009”. The statement titled “India And The United States: Partnership For A Better World” listed a wide ranging agenda: v Advancing Global Security And Countering Terrorism; v Ensuring Sustainable Global Development And A Clean Energy Future; v Stimulating Global Economic Revival; v Educating And Empowering Future Generations; and v Protecting The Health Of Our People. Renewing their commitment to expand cooperation on strategic issues, Singh and Obama committed to redouble their collective efforts to deal effectively with terrorism.
