Dr Vivek Lall reiterates stronger Indo-US defence ties

In a joint statement, President Trump and Prime Minister Modi pledged to deepen defence and security cooperation, building on the United States’ recognition of India as a Major Defence Partner.

"The United States and India look forward to working together on advanced defence equipment and technology at a level commensurate with that of the closest allies and partners of the United States. Reflecting the partnership, the United States has offered for India’s consideration the sale of Sea Guardian Unmanned Aerial Systems, which would enhance India’s capabilities and promote shared security interests."

Dr Vivek Lall, Chief Executive, US and International Strategic Development, General Atomics remarked on this momentous occasion, "We are extremely pleased President Trump and Prime Minister Modi have had excellent deliberations and that the path forward for a game changer in US-India defence relations has been charted. Given the Sea Guardian's capabilities, such a US offer demonstrates a major change in US policy because this type of aircraft capability is only exported to a very select few of America's closest defence partners. Such an offer represents tangible implementation of United States Congress' designation of India as a "Major Defence Partner."
