Giving examples of cooperation on "strategic issues as never before", Powell said India and US have initiated a series of regional dialogs including US-India-Afghanistan bilateral and trilateral meetings and a separate trilateral with Japan.
"Our governments formalized bilateral cooperative efforts in off-grid energy access, nuclear safety, ultra-efficient space cooling, and shale gas development...We exchange information regularly on issues of security concern that makes us safer every day in India, in the United States, and in the world. "Our militaries train and conduct exercises together in a way that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago," Powell added. The Defense Trade and Technology Initiative (DTTI) between the two countries has opened a vista where together "we could manufacture more and better defense articles" together, she said. (PTI)
