US, India Vow to Bolster Ties Despite Strain Over US-Pakistan Arms Deal

Top U.S. and Indian officials on Sept. 27 pledged to deepen security and economic cooperation against the backdrop of Washington’s $450 million F-16 deal with Pakistan, which India has strongly opposed.
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken met with Indian External Affairs Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar in Washington, a day after his separate meeting with Pakistan’s foreign affairs minister.
Blinken said the U.S.-India partnership is “one of the most consequential in the world” and that both countries have made “real progress” in elevating it through institutions like the Quad and G-20 in the past years.
