The US on Tuesday praised India for its “global leadership” by managing crisis internationally.
“India has demonstrated its global leadership in recent weeks, first in Yemen and now in Nepal. We are grateful; we are impressed; we are inspired,” US ambassador Richard Verma said here.
Addressing the annual general meeting of the American Chamber of Commerce in India, Verma said the recent high-level visits from the US and India have shown that both sides recognise that in the century to come, a robust US-India partnership can achieve better results than acting alone.
“Times like these show just how true that is,” he added.
He also expressed grief, and condoled deaths in Nepal due to massive earthquake.
