NEW DELHI: As the fifth India US 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue begins in the national Capital, the United States Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has described the partnership between the two countries as the “strongest ever.”
“It is always wonderful to be here in India. We are building a remarkable year of engagement…We have not only the strongest bilateral partnership we’ve ever had, but also a regional one, and indeed, a global one that was further evidenced by India’s leadership for the G20 this year,” Blinken said.
“We have a lot to do, including with our defence colleagues. I think it’s further evidence of our resolute focus for the United States on the Indo-Pacific, our region for the future; the future is actually now, and we’re building it together with India…,” he added.
The External Affairs Minister, SJaishankar welcomed Blinken and said that this visit (of Secretary Blinken) has a particular significance as a follow up would be done on PM Modi’s June visit and President Biden’s September visit.
