"It said the mounting interest in Modi and his promise of reviving India's growth and reaching out to neighbours is important for the Pakistani government to follow closely."
Islamabad, July 20 - After denying him a visa for years, the US now wants to engage with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a Pakistani daily said Sunday, adding Washington wants to re-engage with Modi's India.

An editorial in the Dawn said the US-India Strategic Dialogue will resume when Secretary of State John Kerry visits New Delhi later this month.

His trip will be followed by a series of cabinet- and sub-cabinet-level visits leading up to the summit between Modi and Barack Obama in September.

A hearing by a subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held this week highlights the fast-changing mood in the US that wants to re-engage with Modi's India, as well as the renewed thrust for India to play a larger regional role, it said.

It said the mounting interest in Modi and his promise of reviving India's growth and reaching out to neighbours is important for the Pakistani government to follow closely.

The implications are that Modi's approach to reforming India's allocative priorities holds important clues to what neighbouring countries such as Pakistan can expect in the years to come.
