Changes at US embassy in Delhi offer chance to rebuild ties

US ambassador to India, Nancy J Powell arrives for a meeting with chief executive officers of The Confederation of Indian Industry in New Delhi on May 22, 2012The sudden resignation of the US ambassador to India less than two years into her troubled term opens an opportunity for both sides to reboot strained ties ahead of an expected change in government, analysts say. Nancy Powell, US ambassador since 2012, had a torrid time at the helm of one of Washington’s most important diplomatic missions as it became embroiled in one of the most serious downturns in relations in decades. New Delhi was incensed in late December when an Indian diplomat in New York was arrested, strip-searched and then pursued in court over allegations she violated visa rules by underpaying a domestic servant. A host of retaliatory measures taken by India over the arrest included the withdrawal of additional security measures at the US embassy and threats to close an embassy-run social club.
