New Delhi: India and the US should work on scaling up defence and security ties that have tremendous potential to take relations forward, national security adviser Shiv Shankar Menon said on Wednesday. Ties between the two have improved remarkably in the past decade with convergence in many areas, he said.

“And where we have differences of approach, we have managed to find ways of managing our differences and actually in some cases leveraging them," he said. Former US deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott, now president of the Brookings Institution, a Washington-based think-tank, agreed with Menon, though he cited Iran and Syria as topics of divergence.

Talbott said India should look closer at “what the very dangerous downside would be in the case of Iran actually achieving the option of having a nuclear weapon."
