Both also discussed their shared view on a multilateral approach in maintaining maritime domain awareness in the Indo-Pacific region.

“Nothing beats the chance to meet in person. I’m grateful for the friendship and vision of Admiral Sunil Lanba, who is nearing the end of a very impactful term as Chief of the Indian Navy. He has been a strong advocate for a closer partnership between our two navies, and we’ve made significant progress," said Richardson.

During the visit, he met with the US Ambassador to India, Kenneth Juster, and discussed how to strengthen relations between the two countries and navies.

“This visit provided a critical opportunity to strengthen the partnership between the Indian Navy and the US Navy,” said Richardson.
