The stakes for nuclear war in South Asia are the highest in the world. Indian security is undercut by U.S. support to Pakistan, dissatisfaction with India_s nuclear status, and acceptance of Chinese hegemony in the Indian Ocean. Although vast improvements have been made in the U.S.-India relationship since the Cold War, the areas of shared interests and values are not enough to minimize the nuclear and conventional dangers in the new environment. Specific topics of dialogue discussion include the state of the U.S.-India strategic relationship; the nuclear arms race; a rising Chinese power; and developments in Pakistan, Iran, and Afghanistan. The dialogue will help to inform each side of the others_ views, identify joint strategic interests, and embolden participants to serve as resources in their security communities.
