Praising the statesmanship of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and the rise of India, US President Obama Sunday said he was “looking forward” and “excited” about visiting India with First Lady Michelle later this year.
Personally thanking Manmohan Singh and wife for their friendship, Obama also hoped his visit to India - scheduled for the early part of November - would be extremely productive for the two sides. “It is a trip that I’m very much looking forward to,” said Obama, before holding talks with Manmohan Singh after the conclusion of the G20 Summit. Obama, particularly, had a lot of praise for Manmohan Singh.
“I can tell you that here at G20, when the prime minister speaks, people listen,” he said, adding it was because of his deep knowledge of economic issues, the nuances of India’s rise as a world power and its commitment towards global peace and prosperity. The US president also recalled that the state dinner hosted by him for Manmohan Singh - the first for his presidency - was “wonderful” and that it had set the tone for India-US ties.
