Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Washington on June 7-8 will mark the last time that he and President Obama meet as Heads of State. Although they have many important bilateral issues to discuss, there will be strong focus on the U.S.–India defense relationship. During Secretary of Defense Carter’s recent visit to India, the two sides made a preliminary agreement on logistics sharing that would allow each to access the other’s military supplies at ports and bases. This initiative and more, including India’s strategic role and relationships in the Asia-Pacific region, will likely be on the table. Join us as our distinguished guests examine the visit’s impact on the U.S.-India defense and security relationship.
