United States is working with India on a range of
issues including regional and Maritime Security, the Pentagon said on Thursday.
“Our goal is to ensure that we are working
together on an array of issues with respect to regional security,” Chief
Pentagon spokesperson Dana White told reporters at her weekly news conference.
India, she said, plays a very important role.
“Therefore the more we can have a conversation
not only about Afghanistan and the future of Afghanistan but also how can we
work together on Maritime Security?” she said.
“There’s a great deal that we can learn from each
other and so the US Defense Secretary looks forward to that conversation,”
White said, responding to the first two-plus-two dialogue between India and the
US next month.
