New Delhi, March 25
After a wait of over two years, India will have a full-fledged Ambassador from the US. US Vice President on Friday swore in her fellow Californian, Eric Garcetti, to be the next US Ambassador to India.
“Ambassador Garcetti is a committed public servant and will play a critical role in strengthening our partnership with the people of India,” said Harris in a Twitter post shortly after the swearing-in ceremony.
The US State Department’s South and Central Asian Affairs also congratulated Garcetti and hoped the step would further grow the US-India partnership, “one of the most consequential in the world”.
India has already welcomed US Senate’s confirmation of Garcetti and said it looks forward to working with him to take forward the multifaceted bilateral relations.
