SECRETARY CLINTON: Good morning, and welcome to the Third Annual U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue. Minister Krishna, a warm welcome to you and your distinguished delegation. It is a pleasure to repay the hospitality you have shown me so often, most recently this past month in Delhi, and to have this opportunity to bring together so many experts and officials from our two countries.
The strategic fundamentals of our relationship – shared democratic values, economic imperatives and diplomatic priorities – are moving us closer to an understanding and a trust that reflects the convergence of values and interests. To grow and prosper, we both need open, free, fair, and transparent global economic systems. We both seek security and stability in South Asia and the Asia Pacific. And we understand the critical importance of a coordinated international response to violent extremism and other shared global challenges.
