‘President Trump knows he needs India…’: US State Department’s Spokesperson
US State Department’s spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said that India and US relations go beyond political parties. She added that US needs India to face global challenges and to solve problems on the world stage. Her remarks come a day after US State Secretary Mike Pompeo and Defence Secretary Mark T Esper held 2+2 ministerial meeting with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. “One of the reasons why this 2+2 dialogue is so important is India has really emerged on the global stage and in fact that we know there are many global challenges that the United States faces. We cannot face them alone. We recognise that we need India. We need the partnership in order to solve any of these big problems on the world stage,” said Morgan. Watch the full video for more.
