U.S. Under Secretary for Political Affairs Remarks on U.S.-India Diplomatic Leadership
Indian Foreign Service Institute, New Delhi
Thank you for that introduction. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Dean Khatua for hosting me here at the Indian Foreign Service Institute (FSI). I am humbled by the opportunity to engage the next generation of diplomatic leaders – you are not just the best and brightest of India, but also leaders who will shape the world in which we all live. I understand that nearly a million young Indians take the exam for government jobs every year. And from that number a class of just 30 diplomats emerges into the Indian Foreign Service. Your families must be very proud.
