The "foundational" pact will help services of both countries to advance interoperability, as United States becomes one of India's closest defence partners in the world.

Sources said the United States attaches great importance to India's engagement in the Indo-Pacific region and the issue figures prominently in the talks.

Pompeo and Mattis arrived here Wednesday for the inaugural Indo-US two-plus-two talks which was finalised during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Washington previous year.

"That vote and the subsequent section 123 civil nuclear agreement opened a path for our strategic relations to grow, bolster defence and commercial cooperation and expanded our people-to-people ties", Pompeo said.

India however is highly reliant on Iranian crude imports.
