John Kerry visits India to improve US-India ties
World | politics | 16:36, 29 July 2014 | 439

AKIPRESS.COM - 8b5cfb0ea91dc289b8675492fea84663US Secretary of State John Kerry is to begin a visit to Delhi as Washington tries to improve ties with India under its new PM Narendra Modi.

Ahead of the visit, Mr Kerry said India and the US could cooperate on a wide range of economic and strategic issues.

Relations between India and the US have been rocky in recent months.

It is Mr Kerry first visit to Delhi since a row between the two countries over the arrest and brief jailing of an Indian diplomat in New York.

Devyani Khobragade, an official in the New York consulate, was arrested in December on a visa fraud charge after she was accused of underpaying her housekeeper and lying about it on immigration forms. She later left the US.

In March, the US ambassador to India Nancy Powell quit amid speculation that it had something to do with the row, although the state department denied it.
