Washington: US has hoped that India would eventually move towards Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multi-brand retail which has been put on hold due to strong protest from key opposition parties.
   
"We said last week that we felt like it was a deal that was in the best interests of both the United States and the Indian people and businesses and would obviously be a boom to both our economies," State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.
   
"We want to see it eventually move forward," he said.
   
It's a decision for the Indian Government to work out, Toner said.
