Outspoken and well known, Nikki Haley, the United States Ambassador to United Nations, is on a visit to India.
She is of Indian origin but is now one of the most prominent politicians of the United States.
In India, Nikki Haley said that she is here to ”solidify” the US’s “love for India”.
She pointed to the current time as that of worldwide uncertainty and strife.
She said that this is the time when the two countries need to come together all the more.
During her two-day visit, Haley will meet with senior Indian officials, NGO and business leaders, students and the inter-faith community.
Haley and the Indian officials are expected to deliberate on host of issues including India-US strategic ties and significant global developments.
Analysts feel that there are significant challenges in the relationship between the two countries.
Earlier today, Haley visited the magnificent Humayun’s Tomb in the Capital.
Nikki Haley’s visit to India comes just days before U.S. secretary of state Michael Pompeo and secretary of defence James Mattis will host external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj and defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Washington for the inaugural US-India 2+2 Dialogue on July 6.
Haley last visited India in late 2014 when she was the South Carolina Governor.
She’s a daughter of Sikh immigrants from Punjab and the first Indian-American to serve in a Cabinet-level position in any US Presidential administration.>
