Obama and Modi set a new course

Obama's visit to New Delhi is set to provide the US-India relationship with a fresh sense of purpose.

After several years of drift, relations between US and India are regaining a sense of purpose. American President Barack Obama will be in New Delhi next week as the chief guest at India’s Republic Day celebrations. If several major agreements result from the visit as is expected, much of the credit should go to India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, who in just eight months has reoriented Indian foreign policy.

Mr Modi showed his intent during a visit to Washington in September. While there, he signed a joint US-India statement outlining the countries’ shared interest in maintaining stability in the South China Sea. It didn’t matter that the Chinese got annoyed.
