US ambassador Kenneth Juster says'America First and'Make in India are incompatible

Pakistan has not done enough to eliminate safe havens for terrorists on its soil, new U.S. ambassador to India Kenneth Juster said on Thursday.
These would be commands like India's Andaman Nicobar Command or the Pacific Command of the US. Shifting focus to the recent decision of US President Donald Trump to stop the financial aid to Pakistan, Kenneth Juster said, "That was really major impetus in suspending security assistance to Pakistan because we feel they have not done all that they could to try to eliminate terrorist sanctuaries in Pakistan that are contributing to the unrest in Afghanistan".
"Further speaking on the strengthening of Indo-US ties, he said, "'America First" and "Make in India' are not incompatible.
Addressing the perceived dichotomy between Donald Trump's "America First" mantra and Narendra Modi's pet "Make in India" scheme, Juster said interests will never be perfectly aligned, and the burdens can not fall only on one party or another. We are each investing substantial resources on Afghanistan's reconstruction and future. "As part of this effort, last month we launched the first-ever US-India Counter-Terrorism Designations Dialogue", he added. "US is probably as open a country as any in the world and we probably take more immigrants per year compared to any other country".
The remarks come in the backdrop of increasing Chinese assertiveness in the region.
"We welcome India's leadership with us in this venture - as partners bolstered by conviction and working with like-minded nations on a regional architecture to ensure that the Indo-Pacific is increasingly a place of peace, stability, and growing prosperity, rather than one of disorder, conflict, and predatory economic policy".
The Washington's envoy to New Delhi added that a number of United States companies have reported increasing difficulties in conducting business in the largest market in the region, China.
"I don't think we can have civilian security in Afghanistan and Pakistan if Pakistan does not contribute positively to that", Juster said in response to a question after delivering his first policy address on "India-US Relations: Building a Durable Relationship for the 21st Century" organised by the US Embassy and the Carnegie India think tank.
On defence and counter-terrorism, Juster observed that both India and the USA have suffered "horrific terrorist attacks" and continue to be targeted."We have a strong mutual interest in eliminating this threat to our societies".
"The United States will remain committed to this region - as we are to the rules-based worldwide order - because our future is inextricably linked to it", he said. "India can seize this strategic opportunity through trade & investment to become an alternative hub for USA business in Indo-Pacific region". "But we also want to make it clear that if they are going to be engaged in certain predatory economic behaviour or other activities than there's an alternative set of principles that other countries of the region are going to follow", he said.
