The inaugural India-U.S. Designations Dialogue was held in New Delhi, India, on December 18-19 to discuss increasing bilateral cooperation on terrorism-related designations. The establishment of this mechanism reflects shared Indian and U.S. commitments to strengthen cooperation against terrorist threats.

 

The Indian and U.S. delegations exchanged information on procedures for pursuing designations against terrorist groups and individuals, through domestic and international mechanisms. They also discussed best practices for effective implementation of the designations. The United States will host the second India-U.S. Designations Dialogue in 2018.

 

In response to media queries on the Indo-US relationship referred to in the new National Security Strategy released by the US, the official Spokesperson said: “We appreciate the strategic importance given to India-US relationship in the new National Security Strategy released by the US. As two responsible democracies, India and the US share common objectives, including combating terrorism and promoting peace and security throughout the world.”

 

“A close partnership between India and the US contributes to peace, stability and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region as well as to the economic progress of the two countries.”
