Counterterrorism has become a pillar in the U.S.–India strategic partnership, albeit one that experiences frictions, periodic crises, and conflicting interests. There are clear limitations on the counterterrorism relationship, primarily because of Pakistan and differing priorities. As a result, the counterterrorism relationship actually benefits from being downgraded in the priorities of the bilateral relationship, as it has been in recent years. With little prospect for either country to make the changes that would improve the counterterrorism relationship because those changes are not currently in their interests, deprioritizing counterterrorism helps the broader strategic partnership. Overall, steady and incremental progress is still a positive and achievable expectation for both sides, especially in areas such as capability building and technical exchanges.
