Indo-US relations will strengthen, no matter which government is voted into power next year as there is basic solidarity on various issues such as terrorism and modern economic partnership, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, Member of Parliament and national spokesperson of the Congress Party, said on Sunday.

Speaking at the India Economic Forum, organised by the Confederation of the Indian Industry (CII), Singhvi pointed out that the new government would continue the present policies of governance, including the Indo-US nuclear deal.

Henry A Kissinger, chairman, Kissinger Associates, echoed his sentiments. “Relations between US and India are unusually close; India and American interests are complimentary," he said.

Samajwadi Party member Amar Singh, also present at the summit, said there should be unanimity in framing policies in the wake of the global financial crisis. "Global crisis needs global response," he said.
