A senior US official in the Donald Trump administration has said that the relationship between India and the US flourished under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and added that it expects the ties to improve after the Lok Sabha elections.

The official added that the first ever India-US two-plus-two dialogue, held in New Delhi last year, took the relationship forward.

“The highlight, I would say, was Prime Minister Modi’s visit to the White House in the June of 2017 where a lot of progress was made on the relationship. I would just say that the visit by Foreign Secretary Gokhale was just the latest illustration of the positive trajectory that the relationship is on,” the official said requesting anonymity.

The senior official stated, “We look forward to working with whoever is elected in this (general) election” and added there is “a lot of strategic logic” to the India-US relationship”.
