Deputy Secretary of State Biegun says US eager to help India become a world power

Prime News, National and International, Defence, New Delhi, September 1:- A top American diplomat has said that the United States of America (USA) is eager to help India become a world power which contributes to net security. US Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun indicated that President Donald Trump-led administration’s willingness to support New Delhi with ‘best-in-class’ defence capabilities.

Biegun made the comments at the third India-US Leadership Summit organised virtually by the US-India Strategic and Partnership Forum (USISPF). He said the partnership between the world’s oldest and largest democracies has gone from strength to strength in the last two decades and that he expects the same to continue.

Biegun said a net security provider tackles security concerns of its own by forming partnerships with countries which have common goals. The term was coined in the context of India’s role in the Indian Ocean as a security provider for rule-based activity. He said, as the fulcrum of global geopolitics and economics shifts to the Indo-Pacific, our partnership with India has become all the more vital.

Biegun said, our relationship today spans the globe, covering everything from aircraft carriers and space exploration to energy security and the all-important domain of vaccine research. Biegun said four US presidents and three Indian prime ministers – irrespective of their political persuasions – have invested in the US-India partnership over the last two decades.
