Mike Pompeo's visit marks the third visit by a Secretary of State during the Trump Administration to India. Asserting that the support for US-India ties transcends political parties and presidential administrations, the State Department said as the world's oldest and largest democracies, the United States and India share deep respect for one another's values and traditions.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during his India visit, will attempt to soothe increasing friction with New Delhi over trade, data flow, arms from Russia and Iran oil imports and focus on strategic ties between the two big world democracies, as per US officials.
