Rose would be in India from March 5 to March 9, the State Department said yesterday.

"The United and India intend to start a new dialogue on maintaining long-term security and sustainability of the outer space environment, including space situational awareness and collision avoidance in outer space," said a joint statement issued after Modi-Obama meeting in September 2014.
