Hillary Clinton advises India to be more assertive in Asia

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is on visit to India, advises the country on Wednesday to be more assertive in Asia, suggesting that New Delhi should play more of a leadership role. “India’s leadership has the potential to positively shape the future of the Asia-Pacific…we encourage you not just to look east, but continue to engage and act east as well,” Clinton stated in Chennai.

She said that India should play a role as a US ally in regional forums such as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and a planned East Asia Summit later this year. India could also help in promoting trade links in violence-wracked South Asia, which would bring prosperity and peace to India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, Clinton explained.
