India and the United States on Wednesday committed to strengthen bilateral security  and civil nuclear cooperation, including the establishment of six US nuclear power plants in India.
 
At the 9th round of the India-US Strategic Security Dialogue held here, the US also reaffirmed its strong support of India's early membership in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).
 
The Indian delegation to the dialogue was led by Vijay Gokhale, Foreign Secretary, while the U.S. delegation was led by Andrea Thompson, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security. 
 
A joint statement issued after the talks said the two sides exchanged views on a wide range of global security and nonproliferation challenges and reaffirmed their commitment to work together to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their delivery systems and to deny access to such weapons by terrorists and non-state actors. 
 
Earlier, on March 12, 2019, Indra Mani Pandey, Additional Secretary for Disarmament and International Security Affairs, Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, and Dr. Yleem D. S. Poblete, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, co-chaired the third round of the India-U.S. Space Dialogue, where they discussed trends in space threats; respective national space priorities; and opportunities for cooperation bilaterally and in multilateral fora.
