Foreign Policy Watch: India-United States

India-US deal to procure four Poseidon-8i aircraft

  1. These planes will be used for long-range maritime surveillance and anti-submarine warfare
  2. The acquisition is seen as a boost to our naval surveillance capabilities
  3. Make a note this development alongside the Chinese forays in Indian Ocean including docking of their nuclear submarines in Sri Lanka
  4. Currently, the US figures among India’s top military hardware suppliers along with France and Israel
  5. Good time to revisit Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI)
