USA naive, China won’t change; India real friend: Ex-US diplomat Nikki Haley
Eminent Indian-American Nikki Haley commented on India’s relationship with the United States of America, and the threat posed by China. The former US envoy to the United Nations said that America was ‘naive’ in the past for thinking that opening the doors to China would make it more like the West. She said that China wants to remain Communist, but India is a ‘natural ally’ and ‘real friend’ of the US. Indian-Americans must learn to brag about their achievements and successes, said Haley while pointing out that the US is wary of espionage by Chinese nationals in the country, but that is not the case with the Indian community. She was speaking at an event by the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum. Haley also hailed the Indo-Pacific strategy adopted by the Donald Trump administration, while stating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Trump had developed a very special working relationship.
