NEW DELHI: Speaking at the 7th India-US Forum in New Delhi on January 27, United States’ Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Texas and India share an “independent streak” and ambition for global influence.
“Each of us sits in a critical location — India, with China and Russia on their doorsteps, and Texas at the nexus of the United States and Latin America,” he added.
The statement from Abbott, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, may further escalate what some consider a standoff between Texas and the White House, as he continues to openly criticise the Joe Biden-led Federal Government.
“We share the common values of family, faith, compassion, and hard work. As we look towards the future, we must ensure that the next generation of leaders in Texas and India will be the innovators who solve the world’s foremost crises and that embracing the values we share leads to liberty and prosperity unmatched throughout the entire world,” Abbott, who was a guest at India’s 75th Republic Day celebrations, said in the address.
