There are 30 states in India
USA is moving closer to India's side
The US and India want to work more closely together on defense issues. During a visit to New Delhi, the new US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, said a "free and open" Indo-Pacific region was one of President Joe Biden's priorities. Austin met with Indian President Narendra Modi and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, among others.
Modi called the partnership between the two countries a "force of global good". With China growing stronger, the United States and India have been working more closely together on defense matters for several years. India's relationship with neighboring China is strained after a fatal incident last summer on the common border in the Himalayas.
Guns for $ 20 billion
According to official reports, the two defense ministers also spoke about joint military exercises as well as areas such as logistics, artificial intelligence and cyber activities. According to the US State Department, the US has sold armaments to India for more than $ 20 billion since 2008. India, with a population of more than 1.3 billion, actually has a tradition of non-alignment.

Before his visit to India, Austin had already been to Japan and South Korea with Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Blinken met his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi in the US state of Alaska on Friday. There had been unusually sharp exchanges in front of the cameras.
