Defence Officials From India, US Meet To Discuss Indo-Pacific, Regional Issues


Senior Defence officials from India and the United States met in Washington to discuss opportunities for enhanced cooperation with like-minded partners to sustain a free and open Indo-Pacific along with bilateral defence partnership and regional issues.

The 16th US-India Defence Policy Group meeting laid the groundwork for an important 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue later this year, as the US and India opened a new chapter in the Major Defence Partnership, the Pentagon said.

The meeting on Friday was co-chaired by Defence Secretary Ajay Kumar and Under Secretary of Defence for Policy Colin Kahl.

“The Dialogue advanced an ambitious set of bilateral priorities — including information-sharing, high-end maritime cooperation, logistics, and defense trade — reflective of the flourishing defense ties between the United States and India,” said Defence Department Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Anton T. Semelroth.
