India and the US have announced a new strategic partnership to co-develop semiconductor design and manufacturing processes for precision-guided ammunition. The two countries also plan to co-invest in lithium and rare earths resources in South America and Africa. The decisions were made at the second meeting of the India-US initiative on Critical and Emerging Technology (iCET) in New Delhi, led by Indian National Security Adviser Ajit Doval and American counterpart Jake Sullivan. The partnership aims to promote India's role in the Mineral Security Partnership (MSP), a US-led alliance of developed countries and the European Union. Additionally, the two countries agreed to unlock over $90 million in government funding for the India-US Global Challenges Institute to forge high-impact university and research partnerships in areas such as semiconductor technology, agriculture, clean energy, and pandemic preparedness. The partnership also includes plans for a joint ISRO-NASA mission to send astronauts to the International Space Station and collaboration between the US Space Force and Indian startups.
