The partnership between the US and India is vital, strong and increasingly productive, said US Secretary of State Antony Blinken while listing the Sino-India border situation as one of the major topics discussed with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar during his visit to Washington.

Security issues were high on Jaishankar’s US visit and the Quad, the US-India defence partnership itself, Afghanistan and Myanmar were the common ground he covered with US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin and NSA Jake Sullivan. The subject also figured in the External Affairs Minister’s engagements with US lawmakers.

Sullivan, in his meeting with Jaishankar, reaffirmed the Biden Administration’s commitment to deepening the US-India partnership and discussed a broad range of issues, including Covid relief, efforts to strengthen Indo-Pacific cooperation through the Quad, and a shared commitment to combating the climate crisis and enhancing multilateral cooperation, including at the UNSC, said the US State Department spokesperson Ned Price.
