By David Brunnstrom and Rajesh Kumar Singh NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The United States and India stressed their desire to boost business and defense ties on Thursday, but trade and spying rows were a reminder of the obstacles to President Barack Obama’s vision of a “defining” partnership. After a day of meetings in New Delhi seen as a preparation for a September visit to Washington by new Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the Indian leader’s election had created a “singular opportunity.” “The moment has never been more ripe to deliver on the incredible possibilities in the relationship between our two nations,” he told a news conference after the annual Strategic Dialogue meeting between the two countries.
