Secretary Ash Carter in India

“When I arrived in Goa on Sunday for my second visit to India as U.S. Secretary of Defense, I shook hands with my friend and counterpart defence minister Manohar Parrikar. That greeting, our visit together, and my meetings later this week in New Delhi, represent the strategic handshake occurring between our two great nations…..Indeed, I am confident that now more than ever, the strategic handshake between the United States and India will continue to benefit each of our nations, the Asia-Pacific, and the world. The grasp of two hands is firm.” – Secretary of Defence Ash Carter.
