US President Barack Obama called outgoing Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Saturday, hours after he resigned from office. Obama and Singh had developed a good rapport over the past five years, and the US President has even referred to him as a “guru” in the past.
“It has been a great pleasure to serve with you, there are very few people in public life that I have admired or appreciated more,” Obama told Singh.
The PM thanked the President for his kind words and for the support and friendship he received while working with him.
“Your leadership has been an important factor in evolving a more cooperative framework in addressing global challenges,” he said.
“Your tenure has been good for India and India-US relations. I will miss working with you on day-to-day basis,” Obama told Singh.
