New Delhi/Washington, Mar 14 (HS): India and United States have committed to strengthen bilateral security and civil nuclear cooperation, including the establishment of six US nuclear power plants in India. The United States reaffirmed its strong support of India’s early membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). The 9th round of the India-US Strategic Security Dialogue was held in Washington DC on March 13. The Indian delegation was led by Vijay Gokhale, Foreign Secretary, while the US delegation was led by Andrea Thompson, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. The two sides exchanged views on a wide range of global security and nonproliferation challenges and reaffirmed their commitment to work together to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems and to deny access to such weapons by terrorists and non-state actors. Earlier, on March 12 this year, Indra Mani Pandey, Additional Secretary for Disarmament and International Security Affairs, Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, and Dr. Yleem D. S. Poblete, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, co-chaired the third round of the India-U.S. Space Dialogue, where they discussed trends in space threats; respective national space priorities; and opportunities for cooperation bilaterally and in multilateral fora. Foreign Secretary was visiting Washington DC on 11-13 March in connection with the bilateral Foreign Office Consultation and Strategic Security Dialogue with his U.S counterparts, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs David Hale and Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Andrea Thompson respectively. These were regular high-level dialogue mechanisms to review bilateral relations, exchange views on major foreign policy and security-related developments and coordinate respective positions on issues of common interest. Meanwhile, both the nations have also sought tangible and irreversible action by Pakistan against terrorist groups and leaders. In a tweet, US National Security Advisor John Bolton said that he met Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale to advance progress on the US-India strategic partnership and shared vision for the Indo-Pacific, as well as reiterate that the US stands shoulder-to-shoulder with India in the fight against terrorism.
