Abstract
With support from the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), the Center on Contemporary Conflict (CCC) at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) organized the inaugural U.S.-Pakistan Naval Track II Strategic Dialogue on October 17-18, 2016. This two- day dialogue began the engagement of retired senior naval officers from the United States and Pakistan in a candid bilateral strategic dialogue on both long-standing and emerging security challenges in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), especially the changing maritime dynamics in the North Arabian Sea. This dialogue fostered a deeper understanding of Pakistani and American thinking on naval and maritime issues, particularly the implications of the introduction of sea-based nuclear weapons for strategic stability in the region and beyond. During this workshop, senior retired military officers from both countries discussed three broad clusters of issues: Peacetime/Status Quo Issues; Conventional Conflict Issues; and Nuclear Issues.
