Strobe Talbott

Aziz Haniffa in Washington, DC.

In an exclusive interview, Strobe Talbott, a key protagonist in resurrecting the United States-India relationship after India's nuclear tests in May 1998, talks about the US-India relations, Iran and the Pakistan situation toRediff.com's Aziz Haniffa.
Talbott, the inaugural winner of India Abroad's (the leading Indian American newspaper headquartered in New York and owned byrediff.comFriend of India Award last month in a glittering ceremony in New York, says, "India and the US are not now, and may never be allies."
Talbott, who is now president of the Brookings Institution -- a leading Washington, DC, think tank, -- adds, "And, by the way, one reason we may never be or not, in the foreseeable future, is because there is still a huge constituency in support of India's non-aligned status, despite the fact that I would say that non-alignment and the non-aligned movement is very much an artifact of the Cold War."


01) In Indo-US ties, the only focus of US has is purely business: to sell its Aircraft, Nuclear Technology, Outdated Armaments, et al;

02) Whereas India looks towards - inter alia - a demonstrable support in fighting against the terrorists infiltrating into its borders:

03) Otherwise each have own agenda that in not always in tune with the that of other, so India and US can never become allies, at the best, trade-partners!
