Greeting the Indian people on the eve of Independence Day, the US Secretary of State, Mr.  Mike Pompeo, said over the past two decades India-US friendship has flourished into a strategic partnership.

He said  the shared democratic values of the two, strong people-to-people ties and commitment to economic growth have further cemented the relationship.

'Over the past two decades, our friendship has flourished into a strategic partnership and we now cooperate on a range of important issues, from defence and counter-terrorism, to freedom of navigation and cutting-edge science, including in space,' Mr. Pompeo said in a statement.

'As I said during my recent visit, the US and India are great democracies, global powers, and good friends. I wish the people  a joyful Independence Day,' he said.
