NEW DELHI: US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday praised India for its robust growth saying, India is an established power today.
Addressing a session at IIT-Delhi, Kerry, who is on a three-day visit, said, “India is an established power today. Wherever I go, I find a robust debate, and an ambitious vision of future. This is perhaps in Indian DNA.”
Stating that President Obama and PM Modi have established a personal relationship that is built on common sense of purpose and vision, Kerry added, “Beauty of India and the US is our history of making the impossible a reality.”
Talking about terrorism, Kerry said that it is clear that Pakistan has to do more work towards clearing the terror sancutaries and push harder against ‘indigenous groups’ operating from its soil that are affecting ties with India and Afghanistan’s peace and stability.
“I have discussed with Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the issue of taking stronger action against groups such as the Haqqani network and LeT. Terror groups like Daesh, Al Qaeda, LeT and JeM can’t be fought by a single nation alone,” he said.
“It is clear that Pakistan has work to do in order to push harder against its indigenous groups that are engaged in terrorist activities. They must work with us to help clear sanctuary of bad actors who are affecting not only India- Pakistan relationship but also our ability to achieve peace and stability in Afghanistan,” Kerry said.
