America and India: A Gaffe-Free Visit and a Strengthening Partnership

June 30, 2017

Episode Notes:

It would be an understatement to say that foreign policy operatives in both India and the United States were nervous about Indian Prime Minister Modi's visit to Washington this week. But it actually went pretty darn well. Trump didn't say anything too crazy and they even hugged (apparently Modi is a hugger). Dr. Tanvi Madan - the director of the India Project at the Brookings Institution - walks us through how it went and what it means in the context of strengthening ties between these two behemoths.
