Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo spoke last night with External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to convey his regret for having to postpone the 2+2 dialogue, which had been scheduled for July 6. This scheduling change was prompted by reasons entirely unrelated to the bilateral relationship.
Secretary Pompeo and Minister Swaraj agreed to reschedule the 2+2 dialogue as soon as possible. The U.S.-India partnership is a major strategic priority for the Trump Administration. The United States remains firmly committed to a strong relationship with India.
