Indo-US relationship beyond mutual interest, good for humanity: Modi

India, US pledge to enhance cooperation as major defense partners

However, as the Brookings Institution's India expert Tanvi Madan reminded me, the line echoes a paraphrase of U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis' words by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during his October 18 speech on U.S. -India relations: "Secretary Mattis has said the world's two greatest democracies should have the two greatest militaries".

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi declaring that relations between India and the US were growing with "great deal of speed", the two countries pledged to enhance their strategic cooperation as Major Defence Partners during a meeting here on Monday between him and US President Donald Trump, according to the White House.

Their meeting took place shortly after a lower-level working group meeting of the so-called quadrilateral group of states - the United States, India, Japan, and Australia - around the same theme of a "free and open Indo-Pacific".

"Both leaders talked extensively on strategic cooperation between India and the United States and shared their commitment to the free and open Indian Pacific region", said the White House statement.

"...in the few days wherever president Trump has travelled and whenever opportunity arose to talk about India, he has expressed very high opinion about India", PM Modi said. "There are many issues on which we are working together", Modi said.

"I would like to assure you whatever the expectations are of the world, of the USA from India, India has always made efforts to fulfil those expectations and we will continue to do so in the future too", he added.

China responded to these efforts on Monday by saying such cooperation should not be "directed at a third party".

India has started purchasing oil from the USA recently taking into account the instability of the Gulf region which is the traditional source of petroleum for India. "A lot of things were solved and we will continue to work together", he said.

Modi said he looked forward to hosting the USA delegation at the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit, which will be co-hosted by the two countries.

Prime Minister Modi noted that he looks forward to hosting the United States delegation to the upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Summit, showcasing innovation and collaboration between India and the United States. Modi says relations between the US and India are "growing very rapidly" and "getting deeper and more comprehensive". Asked whether the formation of the quadrilateral was discussed, he had said there was a passing mention of it.

A fair amount of time was also devoted to Afghanistan, and Modi briefed Trump on the recent supply of wheat by India to the war-torn country via the Iranian port of Chabahar.

"Two issues which came up were obviously the non-proliferation and proliferation linkages, and also terrorism came up particularly in the context of the region west of India all the way till the Middle East", he said.
