After decades of estrangement, cooperation between the United States and India has boomed in recent years, driven to a significant degree by rising tensions with China.

Do the United States and India even see eye-to-eye on how to respond to the various challenges posed by China? What other steps might the United States take to unlock the potential of its partnership with India?
