“India has a very important role to play with respect to responsible stewardship of nuclear weapons and nuclear materials”, Mr. Kerry said as he met National Security Advisor Ajit Doval at the Foggy Bottom headquarters of the State Department on 30th March, 2016.
Mr. Kerry said Mr. Obama has called the relationship with India a defining relationship of this century, and there are many reasons for that.
“India is the largest democracy in the world, and a real partner with the United States on a lot of technology and energy issues… Our hope is that this Nuclear Security Summit will contribute to everybody’s understanding about our global responsibilities and choices”, he said.
The Secretary of State said that the US-India civil nuclear partnership should bolster India’s energy security and the strong economic relationship between the two countries. (VNA)
