Strong US-India relationship will strengthen global order: Sitaraman
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Tuesday that the relationship between America and India is strong and will strengthen the global order in this challenging time. In the video of the conversation released by the research institute Atlantic Council, he said that it is a time when these two big democracies have got their rightful place and they are comfortable working with each other. Sitharaman said that US-India relations are strong and this will strengthen the global order.
“However, the global order itself is something that we have to look at anew. Today, multilateral institutions are not really as strong as they once were,” he said. Sitharaman said, “Times are changing. I think, this kind of relationship between America and India is a sign of positive development.”
