Can’t Pressure Dassault To Share Offset Partner Details: Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman On Rafale Deal


Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday asserted that India cannot put pressure on French aircraft maker Dassault Aviation to share details of offset partners related to the Rafale deal just because the Opposition wanted to know the same.

Dassault, the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in the Rafale fighter jet deal, is obliged to share details of the offset partners under contract with India, but has a year’s time to do so, she said.
