Defense Secretary Holds Collaborative Meetings in India

Secretary Austin seeks to strengthen cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin recently spent two days in India meeting with his counterparts. He held discussions with India’s National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Minister of Defense Rajnath Singh on future military collaborations between the United States and India. They also created a roadmap for a cooperative industrial development, allowing Indian defense forces to access modernized military technology. 

Secretary Austin also celebrated India’s new leadership role in the Quad Indo-Pacific Maritime Domain Awareness Initiative, which will allow for more strong coordination across the Indian Ocean.

“In all of his engagements, the Secretary underscored the centrality of the U.S.-India partnership to maintaining peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region,” the Department of Defense stated.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Austin to look to the Lord for guidance as he heads the U.S. Defense Department.
  • For Pentagon officials as they work to increase and strengthen global partnerships.
  • For the president and his military advisors as they assess the threats and risks posed by various aggressive nations around the world.
