Even as the landmark Indo-US civilian nuclear deal has opened a new vista of relationship between the two countries, it is yet to reach a certain critical mass where it can acquire a momentum of its own, Indian Ambassador to the US Ronen Sen said today.
As the Indian Ambassador to the United States since August 2004, Sen has been instrumental in taking the Indo-US relationship to an altogether new level, which could not have been contemplated some five years ago.
The two countries, not only inked the historic civilian nuclear agreement, but also the trade between the two nations have doubled, and the US considers now India is a strategic and natural ally.
Addressing a meeting of US India Business Council (USIBC) on Indo-US relationship, Sen said both in terms of “symbolism and substance” the historic nuclear deal has been a remarkable achievements. It has opened up vistas, which one could not have had contemplated earlier.
Sen received standing ovation from the US business leaders, who attended the meet, as an acknowledgment to the great contribution he has made to the relationship between the two countries.
