The US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley has said that India can help the US to keep an eye on Pakistan.
“America’s overriding interest in Afghanistan and throughout South Asia is to eliminate terrorist safe havens that threaten us. And to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists, we will use all the elements of our national power economic diplomatic and military to pursue these goals,” she said.
“Critically we will look to our economic and security partnerships with India,” she added.
Responding to a question, Haley said India is a responsible nuclear power and a democracy that threatens no one.
“The US and India have both felt the pain of terrorism and we share the commitment of defeating terrorists and the hateful ideology that motivates them,” Haley said.
