United States' Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a keynote address at the India Ideas Summit hosted by the US India Business Council (USIBC) said that India now has a chance to attract global supply chains away from China as it has earned the trust of many countries including the US, Press Trust of India has reported.

Pompeo added that India can as a result also reduce its reliance on China in sectors like telecommunication and healthcare.

"India is in this position because it has earned the trust of many nations around the world, including the United States", Pompeo was quoted as saying.

He also said that both India and the US need to work together as they realise the challenges posed by the Chinese Communist Party and revealed that India is one of his few trusted nations whose leaders he regularly calls for counsel and deliberations.

"India is one of a few trusted like-minded countries whose leaders I call on a regular basis for counsel and collaboration on issues that span continents", said Pompeo.
