Indian Ambassador in US interacts with White House fellows
The White House Fellowship is a non-partisan programme that brings young leaders into the federal government
India's Ambassador to the United States Taranjit Singh Sandhu on Friday interacted with White House fellows and discussed with them the intricacies of diplomacy and the relationship between the world's oldest and largest democracies.
Sandhu, in a tweet, said "an enjoyable and substantial interaction" with the White House fellows at Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which is part of the White House complex.
"Covered wide areas ranging from diplomacy, India-US relations, regional developments, healthcare, energy, environment, IT and education with this group of young emerging American leaders in different fields!” he added.
Founded in 1964, the White House Fellowship is a non-partisan programme that brings young leaders into the federal government to provide first-hand experience working at the highest levels of government.
A key element of this unique fellowship is the education programme in which prominent leaders from across society meet the fellows.
In the past, the fellows have heard from dignitaries like Colin Powell, the former secretary of state.
Sandhu was the first one to be invited under the Biden administration to this interaction.
Earlier on Thursday, Sandhu held a meeting with Deputy Secretary, US Department of Energy Dave Turk and held a discussion on India-US strategic energy partnership.
