Helping Secure Asia’s Future through Enhanced U.S.-India Defense Partnership

Co-hosted by

During his trip to India two weeks ago, U.S. Defense Secretary Ashton Carter met with his Indian counterpart Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar for the fourth time in a year. The two sides agreed in principle to sign a logistics sharing agreement and to increase collaboration under the Defense Trade and Technology Initiative as well as launch a Maritime Security Dialogue and hold naval discussions on submarine safety and anti-submarine warfare. Is the defense relationship meeting its full potential? Is India poised to provide the “anchor of global security,” a vision offered by the U.S. Defense Secretary last December? Join us as a distinguished panel of experts examines what the future of U.S.-India defense cooperation holds./p>
