Media Call on President Obama's Trip to India

This weekend, President Barack Obama will become the first sitting U.S. president to visit India twice and the first to be a guest for India's Republic Day. The upcoming meeting comes only four months after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to the White House. Alyssa Ayres, CFR senior fellow for India, Pakistan, and South Asia, discussed what to expect from the president's visit.

Atmospherics of the US-India Relationship

Ambassador Robert Blackwill argues that expectations for the U.S.-India relationship in 2015 should be modest at best. Unless Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Barack Obama put the strategic transformation of U.S.-India relations in a preeminent place in their foreign policy agendas, there will be no short-term strategic partnership between the United States and India.

Energising the Friendship

Alyssa Ayres writes that clean energy cooperation has become the new big idea in U.S.-India relations.
