The US has said great opportunities for co-operation on maritime issues with India have emerged after the bilateral meetings between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Barack Obama.

“We have a great opportunity emerging now with the (US) President and Prime Minister Modi’s recent get-together, with India and what that partnership means,” Admiral Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations told members of the House  committee on Appropriations during a hearing on Thursday.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said the bilateral Malabar US-Indian naval exercise, which has grown in scope and
complexity since its first iteration, has fostered mutual understanding with Indian counterparts and enhanced their
ability to operate with one another in a wide range of missions.

“This year, the Maritime Self-Defense Force from Japan joined the exercise in an important demonstration of
multilateral cooperation between Pacific and Indian Ocean nations. The relationship between the nations of the Pacific and the Indian Oceans will continue to be critical in these important maritime regions,” Mabus said.
