Describing her talks with Mr. Mattis as "very substantive, constructive and forward-looking, " she said that India and the USA share a strong and vibrant strategic partnership.
The U.S. -India defense cooperation has steadily expanded in recent years, underpinned by common objectives and goals in the region, the secretary said, adding that such cooperation will benefit both economies while reducing any legacy or trust issues between the two democracies.
Many commentators have said US-India cooperation could act as a counterweight to an increasingly assertive China, which has been developing its military capabilities. He also welcomed India's contribution in war-torn Afghanistan.
Mattis is also likely to discuss furthering defence trade with India during his visit here.
The two "discussed regional issues, with a focus of Pakistan, Afghanistan and terrorism" and "reviewed all aspects all the bilateral relationship, including expanding our trade and investment relations".
Earlier in August 2017, US President Donald Trump unveiled his Afghanistan strategy, where he hit out at nations, inlcuding Pakistan, for sheltering terrorists. New Delhi has committed $3 billion in development projects in Afghanistan and trains Afghan officers in India.
Without naming Pakistan, Mr Mattis said there can be "no tolerance to terrorism safe havens".
