A joint statement said, “The US has agreed to elevate defense trade and technology sharing with India to a level commensurate with its closest allies and partners,” after the pact was signed.

Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar at a press conference said the agreement will allow the Indian and US navies to have an easier time supporting each other in joint operations and exercises and when providing humanitarian assistance.

“The signing of the agreement will make the logistics of joint operations so much easier and so much more efficient,” said Mr. Carter.

“India and the United States have a shared interest in freedom of navigation and overflight and unimpeded commerce as part of the rule-based order in (the) Indo-Pacific,” Mr. Parrikar said.
