^^^^ scratch that. Seems a trilateral Defense initiative between US, UK and Australia.


This bit seems very interesting.


Scott Morrison is set to announce Australia’s submarine program will “go nuclear” under a new defence pact with the US and the UK that has been described as “China’s worst nightmare.”
The new grouping to be known as AUUKUS will advise Australia on how to identify the best way to acquire nuclear-powered submarine capability and share advanced technologies involving artificial intelligence.

Centre slams New York Times for its ‘distorted’ reportage alleging ICMR downplayed Covid threat for Modi’s ‘political goals’: Full details

The New York Times in one of its other anti-India article has alleged that India’s top science agency tailored its findings to fit Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s optimistic narrative despite a looming crisis

***

American democrat regime's mouthpiece gets called out.

Democrat regime's mouthpiece's have very often come up with outlandish claims regarding India.

With suppressing Covid news/deaths, downplaying pro-democrat general Milly's controversial call to CCP, Afghan disaster, failing to speak truth to power & looking the other way as dissent is being suppressed, these mouthpieces have managed PR for Biden's democrat regime.

With Covid disaster looming over the USA, the regime is more interested in geopolitical games like AUSUK which is an exclusive white countries club.

So coconuts are running to daddy for complaining against India.

Nothing new.

With huge covid surge, ICUs running of beds, colossal vaccine hesitancy, stifling dissent, Afghan fiasco, illegal migration, police brutalities on ethnic minorities, blatant systemic racism, militarism, coups in foreign countries, surging gun sales & big tech monopoly, one would expect that the Americans show some self reflection & stop pointing fingers at others.

U.S.-India Joint Leaders’ Statement: A Partnership for Global Good (September 24, 2021)
Posted On: 25 SEP 2021 10:48AM by PIB Delhi​

President Joseph R. Biden welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the White House today for their first in-person Leaders’ engagement, renewing their close relationship and charting a new course to advance the partnership between the world’s largest democracies.

The Leaders affirmed a clear vision that will guide the U.S.-India relationship forward: building a strategic partnership and working together with regional groupings, including ASEAN and Quad members, to promote shared interests in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond; developing a trade and investment partnership that increases prosperity for working families in both countries; finishing the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and other health challenges; galvanizing global efforts to scale up climate action; strengthening democratic values and institutions in support of our respective peoples; and enhancing people-to-people ties that have made both countries stronger.

President Biden and Prime Minister Modi expressed deep pride and appreciation about their nations’ close cooperation to fight the COVID-19 pandemic over the past year, as governments, civil society, businesses, and diaspora communities mobilized in unprecedented ways to share emergency relief supplies during each country’s times of need. Having administered hundreds of millions of doses of vaccine to protect their own citizens at home and abroad, they reiterated their commitment to lead the global effort to end this pandemic. President Biden welcomed India’s announcement that it will resume exports of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines including to COVAX. The Leaders also hailed the finalization of the overarching Memorandum of Understanding on Health and Biomedical Sciences to bolster cooperation on key areas affecting global health, including pandemic preparedness and biomedical research, to reduce the risk of future pandemics.

Prime Minister Modi welcomed President Biden’s initiative to convene the Global COVID-19 Summit on Ending the Pandemic and Building Back Better to Prepare for the Next, given our shared commitment to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.

Prime Minister Modi welcomed U.S. leadership on climate action, including the return of the United States to the Paris Agreement. President Biden expressed support for Prime Minister Modi’s intention to achieve a domestic goal of installing 450 GW of renewable power by 2030 and acknowledged the importance of mobilizing finance for investments in renewables, storage, and grid infrastructure that will guarantee clean, reliable power for millions of Indian households. Through the two main tracks of the Strategic Clean Energy Partnership (SCEP) and the Climate Action and Finance Mobilization Dialogue (CAFMD) under the U.S.-India Climate and Clean Energy Agenda 2030 Partnership, the United States and India will accelerate clean energy development and deployment of critical technologies to advance a clean energy transition. India welcomed the United States joining the Leadership Group for Industry Transition (LeadIT).

President Biden reaffirmed the strength of the defense relationship between the United States and India and the unwavering commitment to India as a Major Defense Partner through close defense engagements in information sharing, sharing of logistics and military-to-military interactions, strengthening cooperation in advanced military technologies, and expanding engagements in a multilateral framework including with regional partners. The Leaders welcomed the deepening of advanced industrial cooperation. In this context, they noted the recent project to co-develop air-launched unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) under the Defense Technology and Trade Initiative, and encouraged more such joint efforts. They called upon the government and private stakeholders to use the existing ecosystems of innovation and entrepreneurship in defense industries for co-development, co-production and expanding mutual defense trade. They also looked forward to the inaugural meeting of the Industrial Security Agreement summit to facilitate high-end defense industrial collaboration.

The Leaders reaffirmed that the United States and India stand together in a shared fight against global terrorism, will take concerted action against all terrorist groups, including groups proscribed by the UNSCR 1267 Sanctions Committee, condemned cross-border terrorism, and called for the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks to be brought to justice. They denounced any use of terrorist proxies and emphasized the importance of denying any logistical, financial or military support to terrorist groups which could be used to launch or plan terror attacks. They noted that the upcoming U.S.-India Counterterrorism Joint Working Group, Designations Dialogue, and renewed U.S.-India Homeland Security Dialogue will further strengthen counterterrorism cooperation between India and the United States, including in the areas of intelligence sharing and law enforcement cooperation. They also welcomed opportunities to develop counterterrorism technologies. They commended the U.S.-India Counter Narcotics Working Group and are committed to finalizing a new Bilateral Framework which would facilitate joint efforts to combat drug trafficking, illicit narcotics production and precursor chemical supply chains.

The Leaders resolved that the Taliban must abide by UNSC Resolution 2593 (2021), which demands that Afghan territory must never again be used to threaten or attack any country or to shelter or train terrorists, or to plan or finance terrorist attacks, and underscored the importance of combating terrorism in Afghanistan. The Leaders called on the Taliban to adhere to these and all other commitments, including regarding the safe, secure, and orderly departure from Afghanistan of Afghans and all foreign nationals and to respect the human rights of all Afghans, including women, children, and members of minority groups. They emphasized the importance of efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, called on the Taliban to allow full, safe, direct and unhindered access for the United Nations, its specialized agencies and implementing partners, and all humanitarian actors engaged in humanitarian relief activity, including with respect to internally displaced persons. Reflecting their long-term commitment to promoting development and economic opportunity for the Afghan people, they determined to continue to closely coordinate and to work jointly with partners toward an inclusive and peaceful future for all Afghans.

The Leaders called for an end of the use of violence, for release of all political detainees, and for a swift return to democracy in Myanmar. They further called for the urgent implementation of the ASEAN Five Point Consensus.

The Leaders welcomed increased cooperation under the Quad, including in the multilateral domain given their shared vision of a free, open and inclusive Indo-Pacific region with respect to territorial integrity and sovereignty, and international law. President Biden applauded India’s strong leadership during its UN Security Council Presidency in August 2021. In this context, President Biden also reiterated U.S. support for India’s permanent membership on a reformed UN Security Council and for other countries who are important champions of multilateral cooperation and aspire to permanent seats on the UN Security Council. He also reaffirmed U.S. support for India’s entry to the Nuclear Suppliers Group. They welcomed the extension of the Statement of Guiding Principles on Triangular Cooperation for Global Development to leverage the combined capacities of India and the United States to address global development challenges around the world, particularly in the Indo-Pacific and Africa. In addition, they looked forward to the launch of the U.S.-India Gandhi-King Development Foundation to advance cooperation on health, education, and the environment.

They looked forward to reconvening the India-U.S. Trade Policy Forum before the end of 2021, to enhance the bilateral trade relationship by addressing trade concerns, identifying specific areas for increased engagement and developing an ambitious, shared vision for the future of the trade relationship. The Leaders looked forward to convening the U.S.-India CEO Forum and the Commercial Dialogue in early 2022, leveraging the talents of the private sector. The Leaders noted ongoing negotiations on an Investment Incentive Agreement that facilitates investment in development projects and committed to an early conclusion. They further discussed how the United States and India will work together to set sustainable and transparent rules of the road that will lift economies throughout the Indo-Pacific. They welcomed increased collaboration through the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure and the upcoming Indo-Pacific Business Forum.

The Leaders noted that the movement of highly skilled professionals, students, investors and business travelers between their countries enhances their economic and technological partnership. The Leaders highlighted the importance of resilient and secure supply chains between the two countries. They welcomed the involvement of the private sector in both countries in building stronger linkages in critical sectors such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, semiconductors, and information technology. The Leaders recognized the importance of critical and emerging technologies in delivering economic growth and achieving strategic priorities. They looked forward to reviving the High Technology Cooperation Group (HTCG) in early 2022, with the objective of accelerating high technology commerce in key areas.

The Leaders decided that the United States and India must continue and expand their partnership in new domains and many areas of critical and emerging technology – space, cyber, health security, semiconductors, AI, 5G, 6G and future generation telecommunications technology, and Blockchain, that will define innovation processes, and the economic and security landscape of the next century. The Leaders recognized the foundational need to address vulnerabilities and threats in cyberspace, including to promote critical infrastructure resilience, and welcomed the increasing partnerships among governments to counter ransomware and other cyber-enabled crime, including efforts to combat cybercriminals that operate from within their borders. The Leaders reiterated the importance of sustainable capacity-building and noted that mutual technical assistance efforts to respond to cyber threats should be prioritized and increased, including through dialogues, joint meetings, training and sharing of best practices. They looked forward to the finalization of a Space Situational Awareness Memorandum of Understanding that will help in sharing of data and services towards ensuring the long-term sustainability of outer space activities by the end of the year.

As global partners, the United States and India resolved to further strengthen their collaboration in education, science and technology and people-to-people engagement. The Leaders welcomed close consultations through the 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue of the Foreign and Defense Ministers of India and the United States to be held later this year.

The Leaders celebrated the deep and vibrant ties between the people of both nations, which underpins the special bond between the United States and India, and has sustained their partnership for nearly 75 years. They reaffirmed, and encouraged others to embrace, their shared values of freedom, democracy, universal human rights, tolerance and pluralism, and equal opportunities for all citizens, and committed to pursue efforts towards sustainable development and global peace and security.

Prime Minister Modi conveyed his deep appreciation for the repatriation of antiquities to India by the United States. The Leaders committed to strengthen their efforts to combat the theft, illicit trade and trafficking of cultural objects.

Reflecting shared values and principles, and growing strategic convergence, President Biden and Prime Minister Modi resolved to advance the U.S.-India Comprehensive Global Strategic Partnership, and looked forward to what the United States and India will achieve together.

All of this because one Senator *really* likes his CAATSA bill. I've spoken to dozens of experts, officials, and congressional offices about the India-CAATSA question and they all think it's dumb policy.

I suspect Its our own brown coconut lobby in usa which understand only one sided view from the left ecosystem sources and never tried to look deeper .
And inherent falt of RSS .. Never does any pr .. Probably they lack any sustainable income .. In school days they used to pay much hard working and talented teachers 1/5th of the salary of those in govt schools .

Haha, this coming from the regime that happily supported the worst dictators of the world as long as they did America's bidding. I'll quote just one example out of the many.

They used the carrot and the stick approach in the case of one of the worst regimes in the world, Egypt. If you agree to everything we ask you to do vis-a-vis Israel, Saudi etc, we give you billions of Dollars, if right wingers in Israel do not like you, we send terrorists.

Terrorist Activists bankrolled by the US NGO programs include an exiled Egyptian police officer who plotted the violent overthrow of the Morsi government, an anti-Islamist politician who advocated closing mosques and dragging preachers out by force, as well as a coterie of opposition politicians who pushed for the ouster of the country’s first democratically elected leader, government documents show.

“Make a road bump with a broken palm tree to stop the buses going into Cairo and drench the road around it with gas and diesel. When the bus slows down for the bump, set it all ablaze so it will burn down with all the passengers inside … God bless.” Omar Afifi Soliman, US-funded anti-Morsi activist

Democratically elected President Morsi was tortured and killed by the terrorist government that the United States bankrolled and ex president Trump literally said that Sisi is his favorite dictator, but that is ok because we are exceptional , in other words a superior race.

The Arab Spring was directly undermined by US policy decisions, direct and indirect interventions that supported turmoil such as the case of Libya, dictators Egypt etc. , and US supported civil wars such as Syria where it looks like they were hoping to put the terrorist Islamic State in charge.

Why is the USA so against democratic institutions in the Middle East and Magrib?

The ironic fact of course, is that the RSS is not even one-hundreth the fascist organization that these people claim it to be. So not only are they hypocrites, they are ignorant dumbfucks as well.

Republican, cuckservative.......what do these conservatives conserve anyway?

Conservatism comes from the word conserve. The entire point of conservatism is to conserve or preserve something – that’s it.

What have these Republicucks conserved anyway?

>Wages haven't risen relative to inflation for 97.5% of people since 1970
>Education 1000x as expensive
>Vehicles 300x as expensive
>Health care 3500x as expensive
>Homes fucking 10000x as expensive
>Lower paying jobs require more qualifications than ever before
>Visa and Mastercard run a digital money duopoly that can instantly shut down any business
>If you try to interact with anyone your communication is kept forever and will be used to harm you a decade or more later
>American society is a debt trap that keeps 97% of the population as indentured servants to international corporations owned by a handful of families
>When the US falls so will fall the last western nation with free speech
>Every major corporation secretly spies on you for the governments warrantless searches
>The CIA got away with murdering JFK
>They buried Vault 7 and PRISM stories and no one cared
>Child slavery rings are run by the wealthy and heads of state and everyone in power
>White Americans are a hated minority in their own country

They lost the conserving battle a long time ago.

Pak visit for specific, narrow purpose: US Dy Secy of State

“It's for a very specific and narrow purpose, we don’t see ourselves building a broad relationship with Pakistan. And we have no interest in returning to the days of hyphenated India, Pakistan,” she said while speaking at the Ananta Aspen Centre in Mumbai.

  • Written By Shubhajit Roy | New Delhi |
  • Updated: October 8, 2021 7:20:46 am
Visiting US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman on Thursday said she was going to Pakistan for a “very specific and narrow purpose” in the context of Afghanistan and in a bid to make sure that they have the capabilities to ensure everybody’s security – including India’s and US.

“It’s for a very specific and narrow purpose, we don’t see ourselves building a broad relationship with Pakistan. And we have no interest in returning to the days of hyphenated India, Pakistan. That’s not where we are. That’s not where we’re going to be,” she said while speaking at the Ananta Aspen Centre in Mumbai.
“But we all need to know what’s going on in Afghanistan. We all need to be of one mind in the approach to the Taliban. We all need to make sure that we have the capabilities that we need to ensure everybody’s security, including India’s and the US of course. And so, I’m gonna have some very specific conversations,” she said.

After her trip to India, Sherman is going to Pakistan, in what many saw as a hyphenation of the two countries.
“So it’s a very particular set of reasons for going and I am glad, as always, we share information back and forth between our governments, and I will be glad to brief them on the trip,” she said.
She said that countries should engage with the Taliban so that they can convey their concerns to them.

She also said that AUKUS and Quad “do not compete” and “they are all pieces of a puzzle, to ensure that we have an open, free, interconnected and inclusive Indo Pacific”.

Recalling an earlier trip to Pakistan in the 1990s after the Taliban came to power, Sherman said, “When I was counselor to Madeleine Albright [then US Secretary of State], I went with her to the Peshawar refugee camp. After the Taliban had taken charge, first time around. And because we were women, we were able to sit with the women and the girls to talk with them.”

“And at the time, my daughter was a young teenager and I listened to a young teenage girl talk about seeing her sister being raped and thrown out the window, and I listened to teachers and doctors who told me they could not do their profession anymore, homemakers tell me they could not go to get groceries anymore. It was one of the most chilling and heartbreaking meetings I’ve ever had in my life. And I thought about my own daughter and what it would mean for her life to live like that. So I share the profound concern we all have.”

“And I think what I hope is that everyone engaged with the Taliban, I have no problem, and the United States has no problem with people engaging with the Taliban, and telling them what needs to happen, that we live in the 21st century and that things have changed over the last 20 years. It is not the Afghanistan that they want to, and that it will be very hard to try to go all the way backwards and the international community has to stand as one,” she said.

“And so therefore, they have to not recognise this government to say, we have to see their actions, not just their words, and we have to make sure it’s an inclusive government, which it is not yet, that there is free and orderly, safe and orderly traveled by those who wish to relocate, that there not be a safe haven for terrorists and we haven’t seen that proven yet that human rights are respected, including those of women, girls and minorities, as well, that there not be reprisals and revenge, she said. “So there are a whole host of countries that say, you are a responsible nation living in that rules based order that we discuss under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I think if the world stands together on this, we have a chance, I don’t know the answer yet.”

On how AUKUS and Quad work, she said, “There are many elements that we need to ensure a free, open, inclusive, interconnected Indo Pacific. Quad is one vehicle, which largely upgrades in security realms that are non-military, non-defence, things that we do together on vaccines and infrastructure and supply chains and technology really climate — all the forward thinking areas in which we have to gain confidence and ensure the security for our people.”

“AUKUS is a new element of an understanding between the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia to spend the next 18 months, considering helping Australia, to build a fleet of nuclear propelled submarines. They are faster, they’re harder to detect, they are more agile and very useful in the environment in the Indo Pacific. It is a one of a kind project, which will be a game changer in a maritime sense,” she said.

“So, these pieces do not compete. They are all pieces of a puzzle, to ensure that we have an open, free, interconnected and inclusive Indo Pacific.”

In all fairness, there are a few pragmatic politicians in the US who want to consolidate ties with us on a realistic level and want to take this partnership further. But they do not fit the bill of the Global Elites who want to weaken individual sovereign countries with their own goals.

I wonder whether MEA has some serious plans to tackle with those who are relentlessly targeting the Hindus/Sikhs and other Dharmic communities playing us all off, especially the Hindus through twisted politics.
