SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: "It's the moment to think in a different way, to think even bigger. It's time for a more ambitious age. Let's start with counter-terrorism. Just a few weeks ago Prime Minister Modi called for all nations to band together to fight terrorism - a message that aligns with what President Trump told leaders two years ago in Riyadh on his first international visit. We're pleased to see the United Nations' Sanctions Committee designating Masood Azhar last month, and from Kandahar to Sri Lanka and beyond. This fight will continue. Our work together must continue."

SOT, Mike Pompeo, US Secretary of State: "It is widely understood that the United States is important to India. It is less well understood how important India is to the long-term interest of the United States of America. I want you all today to know that I understand that and that America understands that."
