Indian Embassy in New York, USA

Indian Embassy in New York, USA and US Embassy in India is an output of the historic relationship between India and the United States where Swami Vivekananda introduced Eastern thought for the first time at the World's Parliament of Religions in 1893. After Second World War the world was divided into two blocks one was headed by former Soviet Union and another was headed by USA. As Jawaharlal was a socialist leader, he tilted towards the socialist block of former Soviet Union so the relationship between India and USA has often been thorny till the end of cold war. After liberalization, the relationship between Indian Embassy and US Embassy has grown in diverse way. The recognition of India as emerging global power by the United States strengthened the bilateral relations. The Embassy of India and Embassy of United States are elevating their relations on all fronts. From both sides trade is increasing, more people are traveling than ever before for work, study and vacations, private sectors are taking new initiative in aviation, space, energy cooperation, including new areas in nuclear energy.
