Blinken, who has just arrived from a trip to the Middle East, including Israel and Egypt, met Doval on Wednesday. “The US is expanding cooperation with India to address global challenges,” Blinken tweeted after the meeting.
“Both sides exchanged views on a wide range of global and regional issues of mutual interest and how to further strengthen the #India- US Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership,” the Indian Embassy here said in a tweet. Doval is leading a high-powered delegation to the US. He also met his American counterpart Jake Sullivan on Tuesday. During their meeting, India and US elevated their strategic partnership with the launch of the initiative on Critical and Emerging Technology or iCET.
The discussions held during the visit of Doval form the basis for intensifying India-US cooperation in cutting-edge sectors and are truly reflective of the maturity of a comprehensive and global strategic partnership, the Indian embassy said in a statement on Tuesday.
Doval and Sullivan co-chaired the inaugural iCET meeting at the White House on Tuesday, translating into action the announcement made by PM Modi and President Joe Biden during their meeting in Tokyo in May 2022. “iCET aims to position the two countries as trusted technology partners by building technology value chains and supporting the co-development and co-production of items. It also aims to address regulatory restrictions, export controls and mobility barriers through a standing mechanism,” the embassy said.
