Tillerson mooted a larger role for India in stabilizing the economy of Afghanistan, and pledged American support to fight terrorists. “In the fight against terrorism, the United States will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with India. Terrorist safe havens will not be tolerated,” he said.

Tillerson expressed concern that extremist groups could threaten the security of Pakistan. “We also are concerned about the stability and security of Pakistan’s government, as well as that these terrorist organizations have enlarged their numbers, enlarged their strength and their capability,” he told reporters.

While recognizing India as a key partner in the face of what he considers as China‘s negative influence in Asia, Tillerson reiterated that India could play a wider role in the region, reports Voice of America.

“The United States supports India’s emergence as a leading power and will continue to contribute to Indian capabilities to provide security throughout the region.” He said Washington was willing to provide New Delhi with advanced technologies for its military modernization.

“We also look forward to further cooperation in the broader Indo-Pacific region as we both promote a rules-based approach to commerce, and a transparent and sustainable approach to economic development,” he said.
