The United States announced plans to help India become a "major world power in the 21st century" on Friday.

Washington has offered to engage in a strategic dialogue with India regarding security issues such as missile defence and other issues, such as cooperation in the high-tech, economic, and energy sectors, under the plans.

"Its goal is to help India become a major world power in the 21st century," AFP reported a senior US official speaking under condition of anonymity as saying. "We understand fully the implications, including military implications, of that statement."
