Open communication will help to make relationship effective: US

Washington, Feb 28, 2013, (PTI):
Acknowledging India's increasing role on the global stage, US leaders said the two countries have vast opportunities and open lines of communication to make bilateral ties effective.

Co-Chairs of the powerful Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans along with the dozen US lawmakers yesterday met in a special briefing to discuss relationship with India.

"As India plays an increasingly important role on the global stage, US-India relations have never been more relevant," said Joe Crowley, Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian Americans, after the meeting.

Crowley was joined by Congressman Peter Roskam, Republican Co-Chair of the Caucus, along with 12 other lawmakers as well as senior staff, for the special India-briefing by the Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Robert Blake, and the US Ambassador to India, Nancy Powell.

"Today's briefing provided invaluable insight to members of the India Caucus and I thank Assistant Secretary Blake and Ambassador Powell for taking the time to meet with us," Crowley said.

"Today's briefing confirmed that there are vast opportunities that our strong US-India partnership will provide for the common priorities of our two countries," Peter Roskam said.

"I'm glad we have these open lines of communication that will help to make our relationship effective and work to keep our commitment to trade and investment, global security and democracy," he said.

In January, Crowley and Roskam were named co-chairs of the Congressional Caucus on India and Indian-Americans for the 113th Congress. A bi-partisan group formed in 1993, the Caucus is an influential voice on issues pertaining to relations between the US and India, as well as the growing Indian-American community in the US
