US will continue to be a country of immigrants: Juster

US will continue to be a country of immigrants: Juster

Stating that the US's "America First" and Modi's "Make in India" were not "incompatible" he stressed that "investing in each other's markets will be mutually beneficial-it will increase our economic interactions and volume of trade, lead to collaboration on emerging technologies, and create jobs in both countries". "This required a sophisticated system of export controls, which India, candidly, did not have at the time", Juster said in his first policy speech since taking over as the USA ambassador to India. Accordingly, some companies are downgrading their operations there, while others are looking with great interest in alternative markets.

During his first speech ever since taking over as the new envoy, at Carnegie-India's special event, Juster also said the USA is partnering with India on counter terrorism and that President Donald Trump and other United States leaders have been clear that they will not tolerate cross-border terrorism or terrorist safe havens anywhere.

The Ambassador said the USA was keen to see India leading like-minded nations on a regional architecture to ensure that the Indo-Pacific region is increasingly a place of peace, stability, and growing prosperity, rather than one of disorder, conflict, and predatory economic policy. "India can seize the strategic opportunity - through trade and investment - to become an alternative hub for US business in the Indo-Pacific region", he told an audience in New Delhi.

The US envoy to India further emphasized on the "many" benefits of growing the bilateral economic relationship and making India a regional hub for USA business.

"With that in mind, perhaps in the next year we can announce major agreements enabling cooperation in areas such as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms; fighter aircraft production and co-development of next generation systems, including a Future Vertical Lift platform or Advanced Technology Ground Combat Vehicles", Juster said.




"We want to promote respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, guarantee freedom of navigation over flight and commerce and other lawful uses of the sea, ensure territorial and maritime disputes are resolved peacefully consistent with global laws", he added.

Juster said he while Pakistan had been helpful in assisting U.S. in the reconstruction process of war-torn Afghanistan, the reason why $255-million security aid was suspended was because they did not take enough measures to dismantle terror outfits in that country. He in fact suggested taking Indo-US military cooperation to an entirely new level: "reciprocally posting liaison officers at each other's operational/combat commands". But he nevertheless underlined the important role that Pakistan too has in ensuring peace and stability in Afghanistan. Mr.

When asked about Sino-US ties, Juster noted, "We are interested in a constructive relationship".

"It is now time to build upon this foundation in a flexible but purposive manner.It is now time to make sure that the strategic partnership is a durable partnership", Juster said. "But if they engage in predatory economic policy and other things, there would be reactions".
