US and India and the 2+2 dialogueBy Gurjit SinghThe India-US 2+2 dialogue is a salient part of the India-US Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership framework as the relationship develops. The dialogue among the foreign and defense ministers of India and the US is useful because India in the past has suffered due to the incongruity of the US system between the approaches of the State and Defence Departments. India has invited Biden to be the chief guest at next year’s Republic Day and hopes to hold the Quad summit around that. Even if that does not happen, the Quad summit in January is a probability. South Korea is a longstanding ally of the US but the affinity that India has developed needs more US nurturing.
