An alliance with India would be very beneficial to the United States. Not only is India an expanding market, but shares a common enemy in Islamist terrorism. India has one of the world's largest militaries and would be able to assist in future endeavors. India is an up-and-coming partner in many fields: space, economy, and military. And this is not the time to go endangering that. Doesn't mean that we can't try.
MK Narayanan, India’s national security advisor, said that the new US administration was in danger of dredging up out of date Clinton administration-era strategies in a bid to bring about improved ties between the two nuclear armed neighbours.
“I do think that we could make President Obama understand, if he does nurse any such view, that he is barking up the wrong tree. I think Kashmir today has become one of the quieter and safer places in this part of the world,” Mr Narayanan said in an interview with CNBC TV18.
“It’s possible that at this time there are elements, perhaps in the administration who are harking back to the pre-2000 era.”
