US State Department Official To Visit India In Effort To Boost Military Sales


A senior US diplomat dealing with political and military affairs is to visit India later this month to seek ways of boosting military sales to India, while also discussing Indo-Pacific strategy.

Tina Kaidanow, the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs, “will hold talks on defence trade and peacekeeping, which are among two key areas of the rapidly growing US-India partnership as envisioned in the Administration’s Indo-Pacific strategy,” the Sate Department said on Friday.

Her tour that includes visits to Germany and to two other countries that figure in US Indo-Pacific strategy, Japan and Singapore, kicks off on May 20, but the announcement did not give the dates of her India visit.

US-India bilateral defence trade has risen from near zero to $15 billion since 2008, the statement said, noting that India is projected to spend billions on military modernisation over the next decade. Read More…
