4 June 2010: Last month, in another context, the former Saudi ambassador to the US, Turki Al-Faisal, made some cutting remarks about president Barack Obama, but they may as well apply to America's relations with India. "It is not enough to talk the talk," Turki said of Obama. "He has to walk the talk." Turki added that from Obama there must be "no more platitudes, good wishes and visions, please".
