Washington: US President Barack Obama's three-day maiden visit to India that concluded yesterday has "achieved everything" what Washington had hoped for, a top American official has said.
"We believe that the visit has achieved everything that we'd hoped for," US State Department spokesman P J Crowley told reporters at his daily news conference.
"As the President reinforced today, his was the third consecutive administration of Democrats and Republicans to visit India. It demonstrates the importance of our relationship and the importance of India's emerging role in the world," Crowley said.
"And as President Obama made clear, he will not be the last President to visit India," he said.
The US President travelled to Mumbai and New Delhi during his India visit. While the Mumbai leg of Obama's trip was more focused on trade, economic and cultural aspects of the Indo-US ties, the New Delhi leg took the bilateral ties to an altogether new level.
