The US envoy Garcetti, as per the reports, said: "India's NSA has not only become a national treasure but an international treasure".
He also expressed admiration for the strong foundation between the United States and India.
"When I look at the foundation between the United States and India, it is so strong, it is so clear that Indians love Americans and Americans love Indians," Garcetti was quoted by a report in NDTV.
He also praised India's advancements in digital payments and financial technology.
"When I look at digital payments and financial technology that India has, we have rocked the world. A 'tea wala' in a village makes sure that she gets direct payment from the government on her phone, a 100 per cent of each one of those rupees," he was quoted as having said.
The report quoting Garcetti said he recently had dinner with a group of multi-faith leaders in India.
"We hear all these talks about 4G, 5G and 6G, but here in India we have something more powerful than that-'Guruji’,” he said.
