The Pentagon will prioritise increasing “interoperability and information-sharing capabilities” with the Indian Armed Forces, a top American General told lawmakers.

General Mark A Milley, who has been nominated as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in response to written questions for his confirmation hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“If confirmed, my strategy would be to continue to bolster and maintain continuity of the defense relationship with India through our existing bilateral military-to-military dialogues as well as participation in senior-level meetings such as the 2+2 ministerial,” General Milley said on Thursday.

“Specifically, I will prioritize increasing our interoperability and information-sharing capabilities with the Indian Armed Forces,” he added.

If confirmed by the Senate, Milley would replace General Joseph Dunford as Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff.
