US celebrates PM vision as Modi Doctrine

Fri, Jun 10, 2016, 06:17 PM
The US has described the just-concluded US visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "historic", and the Obama administration has christened his vision of Indo-US ties that has overcome the "hesitations of history" and working for the betterment of the global good as "Modi Doctrine."

"The most important outcome in my mind of the visit this week and of the years of effort that preceded it is the clear and compelling vision that was laid out by Prime Minister Modi before joint session of the US Congress," Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Desai Biswal said

"This vision which I have come to call The Modi Doctrine laid out a foreign policy that overcomes the hesitations of history and embraces the convergence between our two countries and our shared interests," Biswal told a Washington audience.

Biswal, the Obama Administration's point person for South and Central Asia, said this at a discussion on 'Security and Strategic Outcomes from the Modi Visit' organised on Thursday here jointly by the Heritage Foundation - an American think- tank - and India Foundation, a New Delhi-based think-tank.

Modi, she said, in his speech furthered his bold vision of India-US partnership that can anchor peace, prosperity and stability from Asia to Africa, from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific and help ensure the security of the sea lanes of commerce and freedom of navigation on the seas.
