India and the US on Monday signed an important agreement to use each other's land, air and naval bases for repair and resupply, taking a step toward reinforcing defence ties as they seek to counter an aggressive China.

"The US has agreed to elevate defence trade and technology sharing with India to a level commensurate with its closest allies and partners," said a joint statement after the pact was signed.

At a press conference with US Defence Secretary Ash Carter, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said the agreement will allow the Indian and US navies to have an easier time supporting each other in joint operations and exercises and when providing humanitarian assistance.
