We appreciate the friendship you have articulated towards India during your campaign, @realDonaldTrump.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 9, 2016
Modi tweeted, that he looked forward to a healthy friendship with America, under the leadership of Donald Trump.
We look forward to working with you closely to take India-US bilateral ties to a new height. @realDonaldTrump— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) November 9, 2016
India has had a growing and healthy relationship with America, under Obama. While Trump has spoken about everything under the sun during his campaign, his foreign policy, many political pundits say, remains ambiguous. It remains to be seen, how he takes this relationship forward with India.
