Japan and India strengthen defense cooperation


These agreements were reached on Saturday during a meeting of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a colleague from Japan, Shinzo Abe.

“The document in particular allows Japan to speed up negotiations on the supply of amphibious US-2 aircraft to India. It also implies the introduction of strict control over the handling of confidential information, including those relating to the tactical and technical characteristics of weapons, ”the agency notes.

India’s possible acquisition of US-2 Japanese aircraft was reported back in March of this year. India is interested not only in the acquisition of these machines, but also in their joint production. Earlier, New Delhi indicated its interest in the Japanese diesel-electric submarines "Soryu".

    Well, both of those and those of China are in the enemy - so their union is quite appropriate ...

      Yes, such an alliance is not appropriate. First of all, for Russia. Evgeni Maksimovich Primakov, at one time, eastward, tried to build the axis Moscow-Delhi-Beijing. Somehow to combine the interests of the Chinese and Indians with the mediation of Russia. It would have worked out, maybe there wasn’t such a harsh escalation in the Middle East. To quarrel between two mighty powers - India and China (yes, don’t laugh, India is truly a world power) is the sweet dream of the Anglo-Saxons.

        With all due respect to E.M. Primakov, the greatest man, the problem of organizing the BRICS, SCOs and other unions that are beneficial to us is that: At the moment (unlike the United States, with their financial dominance ANZYUZ, ASEAN, etc.) we cannot create such an alliance by political and economic methods. In order to create an organization in which there would be Greece-Turkey or Vietnam-China (other pairs may be less obvious, but no less complicated), very good reasons are needed. Unfortunately, even our closest "friends" such as Belarus and Kazakhstan are not our helpers until we ourselves cope with the situation. So that "Russia has two allies ..."

          In fact, Russia and Putin have achieved tremendous success by reconciling India and China

          BRICS Bank and Currency Fund established

          India does not buy a huge share of arms in the west - but from Russia - and this is a strategy - after all, it needs to be serviced further

          A purchase from Russia means peace with China - therefore, it is beneficial for China to develop a relationship between Russia and India - and therefore it is beneficial for China when India arms itself in Russia

          That's when India 100% will switch to Western weapons - then China will have problems

          And as for Kazakhstan and Belarus, it’s not worth throwing a stone at us — we are constantly moving along the path of integration with Russia. The choice has already been made and the question is only in the timing of the next steps.

          And foreign policy-loud statements, etc., all agree on the level of presidents and foreign ministries — the 3 republics play on the same team — this is clear to everyone. Alone, neither Russia nor Belarus nor Kazakhstan will succeed in surviving — we all have already understood this and thank God the leadership of our republics and act accordingly

      Nothing to ride on. You won’t take people (China has more), they scurry back and forth ... yes

    Hindus are trying to make contact with everyone. It may be beneficial in the short term, but I don’t know for how long. It makes sense for us to become more active in this Indian direction.

      We are prevented by a roll towards China. We will be too kind to Delhi, in Beijing they will be unhappy.

    Well, judging by the photo, Japan has something to hide in terms of technology.)

    I have never understood the meaning of the term "defensive weapons", what does it mean? If a shocker or a gas canister, well, all right. But a knife may already be an offensive weapon.

      India provides many years in a row at +5 +8 GDP growth.
      It produces electronics, software, mechanical engineering.
      One of the fastest growing and most promising markets in the world.

      These are just packs so far quiet.
      As soon as Pakistan begins to bend its fingers, then India (and its army) is both visible and audible. smile

      Japan is quietly entering the civil aviation market. Mitsubishi and Hongdae can do a lot.
