Indo-U.S. relations are undergoing a qualitative transformation. Cooperation and consultations have broadened and diversified considerably. Both the countries have recognized that closer Indo-US relations would be an important and a positive factor both for stability of the region as well as in the global affairs.

There has been a significant progress in defense and security relationship between India and the United States during last year. As part of the enhanced bilateral engagement on these matters, there were several important bilateral visits and meetings in the context of cross-border terrorism by Pakistan and in pursuit of a shared objective of building a strategic relationship. With a view to accelerating the pace of Indo-U.S. Defense cooperation, the apex level Defense Policy Group (DPG) met for a second time in May 2002 after its resumption in December 2001.

The two countries have conducted mutually beneficial combined exercises in India and United States besides stepping up training exchanges. 
The terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001 and on the Parliament on December 13, 2001 have led to a deepening of Indo-US cooperation in combating international terrorism.
