India, US will continue to push ties to counter-terrorism, global health, cyber security

US and India have strengthened their ties in defence and counter-terrorism, global health, cyber security and deep space exploration, and will continue to push the bilateral cooperation to “new heights” in the months ahead, a top American diplomat has said. ”In our strategic cooperation, we’ve deepened our military-to-military relationships. We now train for joint operations, we’ve moved to joint production of defence items, and have developed a close and consequential counter-terrorism partnership to help keep both our populations safe”, US Ambassador to India, Richard Verma, said.

 

He was speaking here at the Indo-American Chamber of Commerce of Greater Houston (IACCGH) 16th Annual Gala. Both as “natural allies” and “best partners”, we continue to push our cooperation to “new heights” – from global health security, to agriculture, deep sea and deep space exploration, cyber security and law enforcement – we are expanding our work together, and we will continue to do so in the months ahead.
