The US is deepening its ties with India in several key areas, a senior administration official said on Monday.

“India is a country with which we are deepening our relationship in several key areas, particularly as it relates to our economic relationship,” State Department Deputy Spokesman Vedant Patel told reporters at his daily news conference. It’s about deepening, deepening our security cooperation.”

“The President had an opportunity to see Prime Minister Modi briefly on the sidelines of the G7 a few weeks ago,” he added.

Patel said he envisions many additional areas where the two countries can deepen cooperation.

“National Security Adviser Sullivan visited Delhi just a few weeks ago,” he said.

To a question about Pakistan, Patel, though he condemned terrorism, said “ultimately, it is between India and Pakistan.” “Clearly, of course, we welcome any country building more positive relations with our neighbors. But as it relates specifically to that, I only have, I have to offer,” he added. There is nothing for.”
