Bangalore: As the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Robert Blake rightly said, the world has recognized that the U.S.-India relationship is indeed an indispensable partnership for the 21st century and it was reaffirmed by Barack Obama's visit and an increased strategic collaboration between the two countries in the year 2010. The year witnessed a deeper level of bilateral ties between the two great democracies of the world which was well echoed in the words of the U.S. President in backing India's bid for the permanent UNSC seat. However, the Indo-U.S. relation was hit badly at several occasions on many topics such as the anti-outsourcing policy, visa hike, climate change etc. Making a retrospection into the developments between the two nations, we present the top 10 defining moments of Indo-U.S. relations in 2010.

Barack Obama Visit

Taking the Indo-U.S. relations to a new level, the historic visit by Barack Obama who acknowledges the profound influence of Mahatma Gandhi - India's Father of the Nation, had immense socio-economic-political significance. In what seemed to be a major policy shift, Obama declared U.S. support for India's permanent membership of United Nations Security Council while addressing a joint session of the Parliament of India. In a great gesture of solidarity with India's fight against terrorism, he stayed at the Taj Mahal hotel. The visit also marked trade deals worth $10 billion with many other bilateral agreements to boost each other's economy.

Indo-U.S. Nuclear Deal

India and U.S. have jointly worked out to finalizing the nuclear deal, which is and would be a significant chapter of bilateral ties between the two countries in the future. Indian parliament passed the civil nuclear liability bill on August 25, 2010 paving the way for nuclear commerce with the world. According to the agreement, India can reprocess U.S.-originated nuclear material under International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards which in itself is a symbolic concession.
