Defence, terrorism features in Sushma Swaraj-Rex Tillerson call

The External Affairs Minister and Secretary Tillerson resolved to work together closely to further expand and deepen the multi-faceted strategic partnership between India and the US. They emphasized that close and strong relations between India and the US were not only in mutual interest but also had regional and global significance.

In this context, they agreed to intensify cooperation in various sectors, including defence and security, energy, and economy. They also agreed to follow-up the firm resolve expressed by Prime Minister Modi and President Trump to cooperate closely in the global fight against terrorism.

India and the USA are seeing more intense partnership as terrorism has emerged as a major challenge for both the nations while the US administration under Donald Trump has seen increased confrontation with the Chinese led by the Communist Party of China.

Narendra Modi was one of the first few foreign leaders who had invited Donald Trump to India where the US president enjoys good reputation.
