Lo­gis­tics agree­ment with US will help In­dia

Cargo Talk - - Government -

Manohar Par­rikar, De­fence Min­is­ter, Gov­ern­ment of In­dia, says, “In­dia-US lo­gis­tics agree­ment will be of im­mense ben­e­fit, as it will give In­dia ac­cess to US mil­i­tary bases world­wide, and does not in­volve any war ex­changes.” Any sup­port for op­er­a­tional pur­poses will only be on a case-by-case ba­sis.

The Min­is­ter said that the lo­gis­tics agree­ment is cen­tered only on fuel, wa­ter and food sup­port. In-prin­ci­pal ap­proval was given by both sides dur­ing US De­fence Sec­re­tary Ash­ton Carter’s re­cent In­dia visit. He clar­i­fied that the lo­gis­tic agree­ment will not in­volve any “war ex­change”.
