India and the United States will hold an intersessional meeting of the 2+2 Dialogue mechanism to discuss critical diplomatic and security considerations, Economic Times has reported.

"During the Intersessional, the two sides will discuss ways to advance cooperation on critical diplomatic and security priorities, including our shared vision of a free and open Indo-Pacific region, and review preparations for the next 2+2 Ministerial Dialogue,” the Unites States State Department said.
