Washington recently agreed to increase the defence trade relationship with India and batted for a broader security partnership in the Indo-Pacific region. Furthermore, a legislation was recently moved in the US House of Representatives, aimed at bringing New Delhi on par with Washington’s “closest allies and partners”.
The HR 2123 Bill was introduced in the House on April 8 by Congressman Joe Wilson for making “appropriate modifications” in the US Armed Controls Export Act for the purpose.
The legislation seeks that a joint assessment be conducted by the US Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defence “of the extent to which India possesses capabilities to support and carry out military operations of mutual interest to the United States and India”.
It also calls for an assessment of “the defence export control regulations and policies that need appropriate modification, in recognition of India”s capabilities and its status as a major defence partner”.
