After the terrorist attacks in September 2001, India did not hesitate to declare absolute solidarity with the United States. Same enemies (China, Islamist terror), same values – this could be a perfect friendship. In their PRIF Report No. 87 "Natural Friends"? The relations between the United States and India after 2001 Harald Müller and Andreas Schmidt scrutinize the depth and define the limits of this friendship.
This PRIF Report is the English version of HSFK-Report No. 8/2008 "Natürliche Freunde"? Die Beziehungen zwischen den USA und Indien ab 2001. Both are available as free PDF-files (for download please click on the reports’ titles).
