Washington: The US and India are eager to move forward with high-level dialogues and exchanges soon to further their “indispensable” partnership, Secretary of State John Kerry said today, as he extended Republic Day greeting to Indians.

Kerry, who met External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid in Swiss city Montreauex last week, sought to end the row over the arrest of Indian diplomat Devyani Khobragade as the two leaders committed to move forward bilateral ties.

“When I spoke with External Affairs Minister Khurshid in Montreaux this past week, we agreed that both our peoples benefit when the world's largest and oldest democracies work closely together,” Kerry said in a message.

“Khurshid and I affirmed that we are eager to move forward with our high-level dialogues and exchanges soon, and that our countries remain firmly committed to the indispensable US-India partnership,” he said.

Greeting India on the Republic Day on behalf of President Barack Obama, Kerry said the real magic of India lies as much in its promising future as it does in its rich heritage.
