It was decided to strengthen the global strategic partnership between the United States and India on issues ranging from cyber-security and megacity policing, to counterterrorism and countering violent extremism.
India and USA reaffirmed the commitment of the two nations to work cooperatively on law enforcement issues, to combat common threats, improve bilateral cooperation through the development and application of innovative technology, combat the flow of illicit finances and currency counterfeiting, and to work closely to counter terrorism and promote cyber-security.

The United States and India planned to enhance cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection engagement; increase training on countering illicit financing through DHS' Cross Border Financial Investigations Training Program; share best practices and lessons learned in the context of megacity policing; and identify areas in which the United States and India can collaborate on science and technology development and its application in the homeland security context. The United States and India will explore areas in which to share best practices and lessons learned by both countries on how to enhance the ability of federal, state and local police to better detect, prevent and respond to acts of violent extremism.
