Rajnath Singh, Lloyd Austin discuss defence cooperation issues

| @indiablooms | 18 Mar 2024, 09:18 pm

Indian Defence Minister Rajnath Singh held a telephonic conversation with US Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin on Monday (March 18, 2024) when they discussed a range of bilateral, regional security and defence cooperation issues.

"They reviewed the recent bilateral events such as the INDUS-X Summit held in New Delhi in February 2024, and the bilateral Tri-Service exercise ‘Tiger Triumph’ which has also commenced in India on March 18, 2024," read a statement issued by the Indian government.

The US Secretary of Defence appreciated the important role being played by the Indian Navy in conducting anti-piracy operations in the Indian Ocean Region.

The two Ministers discussed ways and means to implement the India-US Defence Cooperation Roadmap which was concluded last year.

"Other defence industrial cooperation issues such as repair of US naval ships in Indian shipyards were also briefly discussed," read the statement.

Both the Ministers had last met in New Delhi in November 2023 during the India-US Ministerial 2+2 Dialogue.
