He added that both the countries had overcome the hesitations of history.

In an address peppered with applauses and standing ovations, the Prime Minister emphasised on the successful partnership between ‘natural allies’ India and the U.S., asserting that the importance of freedom and democracy shared by both nations was key to their respective governments.

Praising the U.S. for turning barriers into bridges of partnership, he said that America had stood with India when the support was needed the most, like when terrorists attacked Mumbai in November 2008 and in other economic endeavours as well.

Prime Minister Modi also said India and the United States should come closer and become stronger, and through their shared values do something for the benefit of the world.

He further said that his dream is to economically empower India’s citizens through social and economic transformations by 2022, the seventy-fifth anniversary of India’s independence.
