This past weekend President Obama made a strong speech to the Indian Parliament supporting their desire for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council. Though this does not mean that India will be granted a seat immediately, it will be taken into strong consideration. Obama stated that India, as one of the strongest emerging nations both politically and economically would be the perfect addition to the Security Council. Obama also announced that the United States would begin a new 10 Billion dollars worth of trade with India in the coming months. This is a promising beginning to Obama's Asiatic trip where he will be next visiting Indonesia.
