India, US in advanced negotiations to conclude defence industrial pact


India is in advanced negotiations with the US to conclude an Industrial Security Annex (ISA) agreement that will allow the US government and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to share classified technological information and data with private Indian companies.
