Relationship with India has bipartisan support: Clinton

Last updated on: July 27, 2009 08:40 IST
The United States' relationship with India has bipartisan support, United S Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Sunday.

"We are building on some of the good work that has been done in a bipartisan way with India, starting with my husband and, in fact, continuing with President (George W) Bush with India," Clinton told the NBC news in an interview.

"We have now announced the most comprehensive engagement we have ever had with that country," Clinton, who was recently in India, said.

Responding to a question, she said her hand is about 80 per cent improved.

"You know, there are certain moves that I can make, but there are others that are still kind of painful. But I'm doing my physical therapy," she said.

When asked if it is hard to handshake, she said it is. "I tried to do a handshaking when I was in India and Thailand, and my arm was really sore at the end. So I'm either putting out my left hand. I love the Thais, you know, I was going around like this to everybody. That helped me out a lot," she said.
