UK Has Offered India Help To Develop Its Own Fighter Jets
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his British counterpart Boris Johnson agreed on a fresh and extended India-UK defence alliance during their meeting on Friday, despite the swift geopolitical instability.
According to sources, PM Johnson and his Indian counterpart addressed next-generation defence and security partnerships, including support for the development of indigenous fighter jets.
Officials have stated that Johnson will likely assist India in reducing its reliance on Russia by developing commercial and defence relations.
India’s military purchases are significantly reliant on Russia, with Moscow accounting for roughly half of all foreign weaponry sold to New Delhi between 2016 and 2020.
