New Delhi: Kenneth Juster has been sworn in as the US Ambassador to India. Vice President Mike Pence administered the oath of office to Juster yesterday in Washington.

After the oath ceremony, Vice President said in a tweet that he is confident that the new Ambassador will build an even stronger partnership that will benefit both countries and their people. His nomination was confirmed by the US Senate unanimously early this month.

Juster’s work related to India played an important role in the transformation of the US-India relationship and helped provide the foundation for the historic civil nuclear agreement between the two countries.

He played a key role in enhancing the Indo-US ties under the the George W Bush administration.

The position has been lying vacant since January 20 after Verma resigned from the post after the swearing in of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the US.
