During his day-long visit to New Delhi, Mr. Blinken also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, members of civil society, and a representative of the Dalai Lama.

On Afghanistan, Mr. Blinken and External Affairs Minister Mr. Jaishankar agreed that there was no "military solution" to the conflict and that taking over the country by force would not help the Taliban gain "international recognition" or "legitimacy."

The two sides also spoke about the Quad's initiative to provide Indian-made vaccines in the Indo-Pacific region. Mr. Blinken announced a $25-million grant for India's vaccine program.
