The stalled Indo-US nuclear deal will be ultimately "consummated," says Indian Ambassador to the US Ronen Sen, as he voiced confidence that the two countries will find a way out to overcome "some hiccups" in their strategic ties.
Speaking at the 26th annual convention of Association of American Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI) in Las Vegas, Sen said the deal was important not only for economic development but also because of the energy constraints facing India.
Sen was quoted as telling AAPI members that their efforts to lobby for the deal will not go in vain and that ultimately the pact will be "consummated".
Observing that Indo-US ties covered everything from the mango to the moon, an AAPI press release quoted Sen as saying that the US-India relationship is more broad-based, comprehensive than any of India's relationship with any other country in the world.
Sen said he was "very fortunate" to be posted in Washington at a time of unprecedented development of rapid and qualitative transformation in the bilateral ties.
He said Indo-US relationship can truly be called a strategic partnership.
"And, I look forward to the future of this relationship with confidence," he said.
"We might have some hiccups on the road, but I look at it with confidence because this relationship is based firstly -- it's not a relationship between two governments -- on a relationship between people, it is based on shared values and aspirations as democracies committed to the rule of law.""
