Haley’s remarks came during her luncheon meeting with the Indian Ambassador to the US, Navtej Singh Sarna, at his residence on Tuesday.
Haley, 46, is the first ever Cabinet-ranking Indian- American in any US presidential administration.
Haley said when she entered the Trump administration, she desperately wanted to see the US-India relations to be very strong “which wasn’t the case during the last two presidencies”.
Haley said Modi was aggressively pursuing reforms and changes in India.
Sarna described Haley as the “star” of the Trump administration.
“Coming from a family of immigrants, coming from a relatively small rural town and moving so quickly to hold the post of governor was in itself a huge achievement,” said Sarna.
Haley before her posting at the UN had served as the governor of South Carolina.
