India and the US have a unique role in preserving the rules-based global order, US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Monday while citing “bullying and coercion” by China and Russian aggression against Ukraine.

After holding wide-ranging talks with Defence Minister Rajnath Singh here, Austin said that the US government is putting its “full weight” behind supporting India’s defence modernisation.

Describing the US-India relationship as one of the most “consequential” ones, Austin said the partnership is a “cornerstone” for a free and open Indo-Pacific and that the growing military cooperation between the two “great powers” can be a force for global good.
