US, India Stand Shoulder to Shoulder Against Terrorism: Rex Tillerson

How Tillerson overcame Trump's alleged ‘castration’ with a well-timed sound bite
By Mark Ragan | Posted

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson promised India a new century of "strategic partnership" on Wednesday, accusing its Asian rival China of undermining global order.

Speaking on "Defining Our Relationship with India for Next Century" at a conclave, Tillerson said Modi's visit to the USA in June highlighted several areas of cooperation.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is condemning reported atrocities committed against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, and he says those responsible - perhaps the country's military - will be held accountable. We share a vision of the future.

"The US military's record for speed, technology, and transparency speaks for itself - as does our commitment to India's sovereignty and security", he said, adding that security issues that concern India, concern the US. India has also placed a large defence order with the U.S. worth billions of dollars.

Tillerson said that the increasing convergence of U.S. and Indian interests and values offer the Indo-Pacific the best opportunity to defend the rule-based global system.

"In keeping with India's status as a "Major Defence Partner" - a status overwhelmingly endorsed a year ago by the US Congress - and our mutual interest in expanding maritime cooperation, the Trump administration has offered a menu of defence options for India's consideration, including the Guardian UAV", Tillerson told a Washington audience.

ASIA CUP: Gurjant's last-minute goal helps India hold Korea
Jungjun Lee gave his side early moments of cheer when he managed to score the first goal in the third quarter. India and South Korea's crucial Super 4s clash of the Asia Cup ended in a 1-1 draw here on Wednesday.

"China, while rising alongside India, has done so less responsibly, at times undermining the worldwide, rules-based order - even as countries like India operate within a framework that protects other nations' sovereignty", he said.

"China's provocative actions in the South China Sea directly challenge the worldwide law and norms that the United States and India both stand for".

Tillerson said even as the United States and India grow their economic and defence cooperation, they must have an eye to include other nations which share their goals. "My visit could not come at a more promising time for the US-India partnership".

He noted India has been designated a major defense partner, which will allow the United States to sell it more defense hardware with sophisticated capabilities that Washington zealously guards, granting access only to its most trusted allies. Trump named his daughter, Ivanka Trump, to lead a USA delegation to a global entrepreneur's summit in India next month.

Tillerson said the Trump administration seeks to "dramatically deepen" ties with India. The announcement of the first Global Entrepreneurship Summit ever to be hosted in South Asia, to take place in Hyderabad next month, is a clear example of how President Trump and Prime Minister Modi are promoting innovation, expanding job opportunities, and finding new ways to strengthen both economies, he said.
