On the US-India partnership
"The world's oldest democracy and the world's largest democracy are natural partners, sharing important interests and fundamental democratic values.... In other words, the United States values our partnership not because of where India is on a map, but because of what we share and where we can go together. India is indispensable to the future that we seek - a future of security and prosperity for all nations," Obama said in his address at the reception hosted by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in honour of External Affairs Minister SM Krishna June 3, 2010.

"Our nations are two global leaders, driven not to dominate other nations but to build a future of security and prosperity for all nations," Obama said at the welcome ceremony for Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at White House Nov 24, 2009.

On Manmohan Singh
"First of all I should say that your prime minister is a wonderful man. He is a wise and decent man," Obama said on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in London April 3, 2009.

"I can tell you that here at G20, when the prime minister speaks, people listen," he said in Toronto June 28, 2010, on the sidelines of the G20 meeting.

On India-US nuclear deal
"I voted for the US-India nuclear agreement because India is a strong democracy and a natural strategic partner for the US in the 21st century," Obama said in an interview as a senator to Outlook magazine in July 2008.

"We welcome the announcement of setting up of this centre in India," stated President Obama at the Nuclear Security Summit about India's initiative to set up a global centre for Nuclear Energy Partnership.

On Kashmir
"We should probably try to facilitate a better understanding between Pakistan and India and try to resolve the Kashmir crisis so that they (Pakistan) can stay focused not on India, but on the situation with those militants," Obama said in an interview to MSNBC in November 2008.
