He also said that the ministers of both India and the US talked about the current conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East during the India-US 2 2 Ministerial Dialogue.
At an event in the nation’s capital, Garcetti said, “I think the joint statement (2 2 Dialogue) shows that both countries are determined to support a strong rules-based order to protect a free, open, and inclusive Indo-Pacific through the Quad and other metrics, as well as global issues.” The ministers talked about the terrible humanitarian effects of the war in Ukraine and the Middle East. They reaffirmed their support for Israel’s fight against terrorism and worked to ease the suffering of civilians and follow international humanitarian law.
Another thing the US envoy said was that the US was looking forward to having more guests in December and January, as well as many big investments in Indian technology by US private companies. As talks between governments, extending the circle of space, defense, and production.
“We made important steps toward strengthening our major defence partnership which continues to grow, increasing the acceleration that we have seen through initiatives like the roadmap US-India in industrial cooperation and defence” .
He also said that the talks between New Delhi and Washington should go deeper when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI).
“India and the US should work together and collaborate in new areas. This is especially important since we sometimes only think about weapons and what’s being sold or could be co-developed.” Our militaries, which I think is just as important as any equipment, and our countries talk about ways to strengthen their science and technology partnerships so that technology is used for the good of everyone instead of technology that hurts us or divides us. “We talk about how to use technology to connect and protect us,” he said.
Plus, Garcetti said that the US government is talking to the Indian government about adding more staff to consulates and speeding up the visa process.
