WASHINGTON: Four top American senators have called Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address a joint session of the U.S. Congress in a resolution introduced by them in the Senate.

Senators Mark Warner, John Cornyn, Tim Kaine and Jim Risch introduced the resolution that stresses on the importance of improving the U.S.-India strategic partnership to promote stability, democracy, and economic prosperity.

Warner and Cornyn are co-chairs of the bipartisan Senate India Caucus, of which Kaine is a member.

The resolution called the Obama administration to soon nominate an Ambassador to India and to develop a clear strategic plan for its relationship with the country.

It underscored the importance of working cooperatively to make progress that will benefit both of the countries across a range of areas, including defense, trade, regional cooperation, education and skills development, infrastructure, and energy.

"We have already seen progress in the U.S.-India relations under the new Indian government, including the Pentagon naming Frank Kendall to lead the Defence Trade and Technology Initiative, lifting the cap on foreign direct investment in defense and insurance, a new emphasis on the U.S.-India Community College initiative, and convening the a U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue in Delhi this week," said Warner.
