Education & Development

On July 31, 2014 Secretary Kerry co-chaired the fifth U.S.-India Strategic Dialogue with the Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj in New Delhi. Secretary Kerry was accompanied by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and officials from other U.S. agencies including the Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, and NASA. Discussions of bilateral and regional issues included U.S.-India economic ties, counterterrorism efforts, regional security initiatives, people-to-people ties, and other facets of the strategic partnership. It was the first U.S. cabinet-level visit to New Delhi since the new Indian Government was elected, and it underscored the strategic importance of the U.S.-India relationship.
