The US Vice President Mike Pence has said that his country will help the Indian armed forces to obtain the resources and technology it needs to support security in South Asia.

Pence on Tuesday said the process to approve the sale was underway and expressed hope that it would accurately reflect commitment to mutual security among both nations.

“A first-rate global power needs a first-rate military, and the United States will continue to enable the Indian armed forces to obtain the resources and technology it needs to protect the Indian people and support security in the region,” Pence told members of the US India Council in a key note address.

He urged India to enact the necessary economic reforms to ensure fair and reciprocal bilateral trade. He also said India and the US are strong partners in fight against terrorism.

In the key note address Pence also said, the US and India can deepen their ties in many industries and areas.

He said that the United States and India already collaborate to a significant extent. But in the face of terror networks that are ever-more sophisticated, ever-more dispersed. He said, both countries will continue to take renewed action to facilitate two-way information and intelligence sharing to confront this threat.
