New Delhi [India], October 6 (ANI): Noting that India and the US ties have seen a "very steady growth" in past few years, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla said that stable understanding and trust have led to more active and regular engagements between the two nations in the matter of strategic interests and global issues.

In his opening remarks, Shringla said he looks forward to a substantive discussion with US Deputy Secretary of State Sherman.
"From past few decades, more in past few years, our relationship has seen very very steady growth in both in substance pace and momentum," Shringla said during his meeting with visiting US Deputy Secretary of State, Sherman.
