‘India Will Not Be America’s 20th Century Ally’

India-U.S. relations are in the “normal” mode and it’s perfectly normal to bicker over trade, disagree about sanctions and all such issues, says Jeff Smith, South Asia scholar at the Heritage Foundation in the United States. In an exclusive chat with SNI, he lauds Narendra Modi’s visit for its overall positive impact on the bilateral relationship but acknowledges hard bargaining lies ahead on the trade front. India’s ties with Russia, U.S. curbs on the sale of Iranian oil are other areas of discord.  Kashmir is low on the U.S. radar for now, he says, but India needs to get its act together.
