BJP on Sunday expressed hope that US President Barack Obama's visit to India next month brings both the countries closer to become strong partners in fight against terrorism.
"Obama is a representative of a great democracy. We welcome his visit and hope that both the countries will look forward in becoming strong partners in fight against terrorism, " BJP spokesman Tarun Vijay told reporters here.
He said if US wants to carry on fight against terrorism globally, it has to rise over personal interests.
Also, it has to ensure that its aid to Pakistan is not used in abetting terrorism in India by the neighbouring country.
Taking a jibe at the neighbouring country, Vijay said that Pakistan has perfected in the art of seeking US aid on the pretext of fighting Talibans.
Vijay expressed hope that Obama during his visit will understand India's stand on terrorism and outsourcing.
The BJP leader said that following Obama's negative remarks over outsourcing, his party was concerned for the Indians' employment in US.
Indian youths have contributed a lot in making the US economy robust, he said, adding that Indians are with the MNCs and American companies because of their sheer outstanding qualities.
Any attempt of US of taking back the employment from Indian youths will be against its own democratic values, Vijay said.
