External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar mentioned that India-US partnership has come of age following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to the United States. He made the remarks while delivering a speech in Kolkata on June 30, 2023.
Delivering a speech at the Syama Prasad Lecture on ‘New India and the World’ , the Minister said, “I actually, truly believe that with this visit, in many ways, our partnership has come of age. I use the word partnership and not relationship. I think we had a relationship earlier. Today it is much more collaborative, mutual interest-driven and mutually respectful.”
