Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has pitched for enhanced cooperation between India and the US to jointly combat a host of regional and global threats, including violence, terrorism and poverty.
Speaking to a delegation of Ahimsa Vishwa Bharti, led by Jain leader Acharya Dr Lokesh Muni, Ms Clinton said that violence and terrorism can’t solve any issue, but dialogues and discussions can. She stressed that religious leaders can make the world a better place to live in.
India and the US have a robust wide-ranging security and counter-terror cooperation. Against the backdrop of proliferation global threats, this counter-terror cooperation between the world’s oldest and largest democracies is only set to grow stronger in days to come.
Hillary Clinton, who is seeking a Democratic presidential nomination to run for the White House in 2016 election, appreciated the “peace education” programme initiated by Acharya Muni. In return, Muni invited her to India to participate in the 10th anniversary celebration of Ahimsa Vishwa Bharti.
If elected, Ms Clinton would become the first woman president of the United States.
