Fair Observer republished Gateway House's Ambassador Neelam Deo's article on the third Indo-U.S. strategic dialogue. She notes that the global shift of economic weight to Asia, U.S. military exhaustion, indebtedness to China and other factors call for a greater convergence in Indo-U.S. interests than ever before.
The setting for the third Indo-U.S. Strategic Dialogue is promising: a global shift of economic weight to Asia, U.S. military exhaustion and indebtedness to China and other factors call for a greater convergence in Indo-U.S. interests than ever before.
