India, US bi-annual meet on security
Jan 14, 2014

Officials of India and the United States met for bi-annual intelligence discussion. A team of the US officials from the office of the Director of National Intelligence and a team of Joint Intelligence Committee from Indian side discussed a range of security-related issues. The Indian side gave its intelligence assessment of the country's neighbourhood whereas the US shared the global perspective.

The three-day dialogue is of importance to India in the wake of proposed withdrawal of US-led troops from Afghanistan this year.

This is the first bilateral interaction between the two countries since the arrest of Khobragade, former Indian consul general in New York.

The bi-annual dialogue is held in January in New Delhi and in June in Washington every year to discuss emerging challenges on security front.

During the meet, the Joint Intelligence Committee under the National Security Council receives intelligence data from security and intelligence agencies and analyses it.
