She said, Mattis has assured that he will raise the issue of terrorism with Pakistan when he visits that country.

Mattis' comments come amid escalating rhetoric between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"This is a historic opportunity for our two democracies at a time of strategic convergence", Mattis had said upon his arrival here on Monday. He will meet Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday.

Shamila Chaudhary, who worked on U.S. President Barack Obama's failed South Asia policy, criticized Trump's strategy as inherently contradictory, warning that it may prompt Pakistan to intensify its support to terrorist groups in response to India's involvement in Afghanistan.

According to Mattis, there can be no safe haven anywhere for terrorists, though he did not name Pakistan. "Any nation that is living by the traditional rules of non-interference in other states in today's age of anti-terrorism, they will not find this relationship in any way adversarial", he said.

India which was given the status of Major Defence Partner during the previous Obama administration expects to get greater access to USA defence technology.

In an apparent reference to China, which has disputes with its maritime neighbours in the South China sea, both India and the United States favoured maintaining an "open, just and rules-based order". In this visit, there may be a discussion on the creation of state-of-the-art combat aircraft and drones like F-16 and F-18A series under Make in India program.

Indian and USA negotiators are now trying to move forward with a deal to supply the Indian navy with 22 Sea Guardian drone aircraft, whose June approval by the US government was the first such clearance to a non-NATO ally.

"The situation in our neighbourhood and growing menace of cross-border terrorism were discussed in-depth", Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said after the meeting.
