Washington DC [US], June 24 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated the strong bond between India and US and said that the partnership is forged with conviction.

He said that the foundation of this partnership is the citizens of the United States and India while addressing the Indian diaspora.
“Another highlight of this partnership is the overwhelming support for India in the US, across party lines,” said PM Narendra Modi.
The Prime Minister said that he was eagerly waiting for this program during his US tour.
“You all are the strong pillars of America’s development journey, so I wanted to meet you. All of you have brought America to this height with your hard work. You are all part of the American Dream.

You have lived the American dream.”
PM Modi said that there comes a time in the development journey of every country when it sets a new goal with new energy.
“Today India is also passing through a similar time frame. Sometime back we completed 75 years of independence and took a resolution. 140 crore Indians have taken a pledge and this pledge is for a developed India. We are providing permanent solutions to decades-old problems in India and we also challenge challenges,” said PM Modi.
Speaking about his historic State visit to the US, PM Modi said, “It has been four days since I came to the US. In these 4 days, I met several people, including President Biden. The one thing that gave me self-confidence is — India and US partnership.”
