US looks at India to help it keep an eye on Pakistan, says US Ambassador to the UN

New Delhi, Oct 18 (IBNS): India can help the United States keep an eye on Pakistan as President Donald Trump has taken tougher approach to Islamabad harbouring terrorists, said Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the United Nation, according to media reports on Wednesday.

According to Haley, the US President has announced a new strategy to combat terrorism in Afghanistan and South Asia and one of the key aspects of that strategy is to develop a strategic partnership with India.

Talking at an event organised in Washington by the US India Friendship Council, Haley also said that if India wants to fulfill its stand of earning a permanent seat in the UN Security Council, then it would be better "not to touch the veto", the media reported.

The media quoted Haley as saying that Russia and China are the two global powers against changes in the current structure of the Security Council.

"This reform of the UN Security Council is much more about the veto. The permanent five [members of the Security Council)] have the ability to veto. Russia, China, the UK, the US and France and none of them want to give that up," she said, reported NDTV.

In September this year, foreign ministers of G4 countries, which includes India, Brazil, Germany and Japan, met in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly to push their case for reform of the Security Council including expansion of its permanent and non-permanent members, according to media reports.
