Committed to work for India's NSG tag: U.S. envoy

"The US Ambassador to India Kenneth I. Juster on Thursday said hailed immigrants" contribution to the US economy and said its policy on immigrants is not going to change.

"We (Us and India) have a strong mutual interest in eliminating this threat to our societies". On China and the new worldwide philosophy, Juster said, "Our strategy in the Indo-Pacific is an affirmative strategy. we want to have a constructive relationship with every country in the region. with mutual respect, that does not infringe on the sovereignty of other countries. we want to have a constructive relationship with the Chinese".

Juster also said that a strategic view of the bilateral economic relationship could eventually lead to a road map for a US-India free trade agreement. "We feel Pakistan has not done enough for the stability of Afghanistan". For India and the US, Indo-Pacific is vital for the security and prosperity of our people as well as others. "We also expect in the very near future India to join the Australia Group on chemical and biological weapons".

Juster said he while Pakistan had been helpful in assisting U.S. in the reconstruction process of war-torn Afghanistan, the reason why $255-million security aid was suspended was because they did not take enough measures to dismantle terror outfits in that country. "And we are working closely with India and our global partners to secure India's membership in the NSG", Juster said while adding the USA, at the same time, has gone from a restrictive policy regarding the export of dual-use items to India to a much more liberal one. "I don't think we are going to get stability and security in Afghanistan if Pakistan does not contribute positively to that", he said.

Recalling that United States defence trade has increased from virtually zero to $15 billion now, the ambassador said the U.S. wanted to support India's initiative for indigenous production. "A prominent example of this commitment was the Trump Administration's decision last June to approve the sale of the Sea Guardian Unmanned Aerial System, positioning India to be our first non-NATO partner or treaty ally to acquire this advanced platform", Juster said.

"We are working closely with India and our global partners to secure India's membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group".

The Washingtons envoy to New Delhi added that a number of United States companies have reported increasing difficulties in conducting business in the largest market in the region, China.

"We will not tolerate terrorism, cross-border terrorism or any form of terrorism or safe havens of any type". China wants that in case the NPT clause is waived off for India then Pakistan should also be allowed to be a member of the NSG.

"We seek to assist India's efforts to build up its indigenous defence base and capabilities, as well as enhance the inter-operability of our two forces as major defence partners in the Indo-Pacific region", he said. Together we want to ensure a free& open region. he added.
