"The United States is committed to a long-term strategic partnership with India. We respect India as a regional and emerging global power as well as a provider of regional security. We see a growing convergence with India on our strategic outlook for the Asia-Pacific region and India's role in shaping the Asian landscape. The past decade has been particularly transformative in the bilateral relationship, culminating in President Obama's successful January trip to New Delhi as the Chief Guest for India's 66th Republic Day celebrations. The president's visit resulted in several key defense outcomes, including finalizing the 2015 Framework for the U.S.-India Defense Relationship. This Framework provides our two nations with guiding principles for defense engagement for the coming decade, including our military exchanges and exercises, a promising outlook on defense trade, and increasingly close consultations on regional security issues and maritime security."
