Greeting the people of India on the eve of its Republic Day, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said the US-India strategic partnership is making the world more united, prosperous, and secure.

"Together we are strengthening our ties and working to address some of the most difficult global challenges," she said in a Republic day message holding out an assurance "that the United States stands with you."

Noting that the United States and India share an unwavering commitment to democratic government, Clinton said: "Our shared values are the foundation for the innovative, entrepreneurial drive that is allowing more and more of our 1.5 billion people to realize their potential."

"My three trips to India as Secretary of State reinforced my unyielding belief that the US-India strategic partnership is making the world more united, prosperous, and secure," said America's top diplomat considered a prime mover of stronger India-US ties.

"Together we are strengthening our ties and working to address some of the most difficult global challenges," she said.

Here is the full text of the message:

"On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I am delighted to send my best wishes to the people and government of India as you celebrate your 64th Republic Day this January 26th.
