The White House has said the Indo-US relationship has been "exceedingly good" in the last eight years of Bush regime and is expected to continue during the incoming Obama Administration.
"I think that India and US relations have been exceedingly good during our administration. And I have no reason to expect that it won't continue when Barack Obama becomes president next Tuesday," White House spokesperson Dana Perino told reporters in response to a question during her daily press briefing on Wednesday.
A White House document released recently listed out the improving relationship with India as one of the key foreign policy achievements of the Bush Administration's eight years.
Indications coming from the top officials of the Obama Administration suggest the relationship with India is expected to continue on the same path which was carved out by president George W Bush.
Besides the Indo-US civilian nuclear deal, which ended decades of nuclear apartheid of India, the two countries during these eight years signed several significant agreements including the Open Skies Agreement, the Defense Agreement, signing of memorandum of understanding for cooperation in the field of Science and Technology.
Trade and business between the two countries have jumped manifold as a result of the improving relationship.
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the US Secretary of State-designate, Hillary Clinton, on Tuesday said the Obama Administration wants to build on the political and economic friendship with India.
