NEW DELHI/ AGARTALA, Nov 9 (TIWN): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday congratulated Republican Donald Trump on being elected as the 45th President of the US and said India looks forward to working with him closely to take bilateral ties to "a new height". "Congratulations @realDonaldTrump on being elected as the 45th US President," Modi tweeted. The Prime Minister also appreciated the friendship that Trump had "articulated towards India" during his campaign. "We look forward to working with you closely to take India-US bilateral ties to a new height," he said. Trump, 70, was on Wednesday elected the new US President, defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton.However, India’s political party CPI-M, which is also dominating Tripura since 23 years, had opposed the Indo-US relation as they have always seen US as a big blow to their close political partners at China. Infact Tripura CM Manik Sarkar criticizing the Modi-Obama relation said recently, ‘America is using India against Pakistan, but soon China will be a big blow for America's economy’.

 But under PM Modi, rather than licking boots of China, PM Modi had decided to develop the country with better relation and under Obama Era, he had taken many advices and decisions based on those India-US meets.

In the first two years of the Modi government, India and the United States have taken calibrated efforts at the highest political level to transform bilateral relations. His visit symbolised the deepening defence ties between the two countries, with the Modi government agreeing in principle to sign three ground-breaking agreements.

On the other hand, within moments of Donald Trump being declared the new US President, China on Wednesday said it looks forward to working with the new US government to promote bilateral relations for the benefit of both countries and the world. The Chinese Foreign Ministry, in a statement, said it expects to make joint efforts with the new US government to maintain sustained, healthy and stable growth of China-US relations, and benefit people of the two countries and the world.

But the Modi government, over the past two years, has certainly scored major victories in building positive ties between India and the United States. The prime minister himself has taken proactive measures to build a rapport with important U.S. political leaders. He met Obama six times just in his first 24 months in office and visited the United States three times. 

However, US President-elect, Donald Trump, who scripted an amazing victory, on Wednesday said that America will no longer settle for anything less than the best, and told the world community that the US will deal "fairly with every one".

In his first speech to ecstatic supporters after being elected the 45th President of the US, Trump said: "No dream is too big, no challenge too great. America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We will reclaim our country's destiny."

"I want to tell the world community, that we will deal fairly with everyone.. We will seek partnership, not confrontation", he added.
