A second-term in Oval Office is unlikely to change US President Barack Obama's positive approach to the bilateral relations with India. "India is a big part of my plans," said Obama after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh congratulated him in person on his re-election.
The two leaders were attending the East Asia Summit at a retreat in the Cambodian capital. They came face-to-face with each other on three occasions during the event. Singh, who met Obama for the first time after he won the race to White House, told the US President, "Congratulations on your re-election."
After Obama's victory, Singh had said that he looked forward to continuing their "friendship" and "rewarding association" as much more could be done together to further strengthen bilateral ties. "Dear Mr President, it gives me great pleasure to convey to you my warmest congratulations on your re-election as the President of the US," Singh's letter had said.
Meanwhile, National Security Advisor Shivshankar Menon held a 90-minute meeting with his US counterpart Tom Donilon and discussed bilateral relations and other issues of mutual interest.
