Sharing a picture, Rajnath Singh tweeted on Thursday, “Paying tributes to revered Bapu at his statue in Honolulu, Hawaii.”

There is extensive engagement between USINDOPACOM and the Indian Army, which includes numerous military exercises, training programs and exchanges.

Ahead of the 2+2 talks, Rajnath Singh held a bilateral meeting with Secretary Austin and reviewed the entire gamut of India-US defense ties and agreed to take the military-to-military relationship forward.
