India-US security cooperation will become more important in the coming years: Richard Verma

Washington, March 15 (Language) Former US Ambassador to India Richard Verma said on Thursday that India-US security cooperation will become even more important in the coming years and the work of both the countries on emerging technologies will be more promising.

The top US diplomat reiterated President Joe Biden’s comments that this is the defining partnership of the 21st century.

Richard Verma, US Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, wrote in a blog post after returning from a recent visit to India, “As both President Biden and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have said, our impact on each other is important, but It’s even more important what we can do for the world. “Whether it’s tackling food insecurity or fighting the next pandemic or connecting millions of people to the digital economy, together we can do so much.”

Verma is a high-ranking American citizen of Indian origin in the State Department. He is the first Indian-American to be the US Ambassador to India.

“So, where are we going,” Verma said, citing significant progress made in India-US relations over the past few decades.

He described defence, democracy and technology as three important areas of cooperation between the two countries.

“Our security cooperation will become more important in the coming years,” he said. The challenges we face today are real but building our collective capabilities, increasing information sharing and improving maritime awareness will ensure that India remains a security provider across the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.”

“Our work on emerging technologies will be even more promising,” Verma said. New and emerging technologies provide tremendous opportunities for economic growth and development. “At the same time, recent devastating cyber attacks by criminals and other countries highlight the threat cyber vulnerabilities pose to global peace and security.”
