United States participation in Aero India 2021 is another example of the deepening defense and strategic partnership between the United States and India. Don Heflin, U.S. Chargé d’Affaires, will lead a high-level delegation of U.S. Government officials and defense industry representatives to the event.
“I am pleased to head this year’s U.S. delegation to Aero India to show our continued commitment to strengthening U.S.-India defense cooperation, in line with India’s status as a Major Defense Partner,” Heflin said.
“U.S. participation in Aero India 2021 reflects our increasingly close bilateral defense ties and our shared vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific region.” U.S. participation in Aero India 2021 provides both U.S. industry and the U.S. military services the opportunity to strengthen military-to-military relations and defense cooperation with India. Our two militaries work together to uphold a rules-based international order in the Indo-Pacific.
Public and private participation by the United States in Aero India 2021 demonstrates the importance the United States places on its strategic partnership with India.
