In­dia to get ac­cess ...

with steps that New Delhi has com­mit­ted to take to ad­vance its ex­port con­trol ob­jec­tives. Ac­knowl­edg­ing that the im­pres­sion in New Delhi is that In­dia is not get­ting ac­cess to the kind of tech­nol­ogy it needs from the US, the of­fi­cial said it is a con­stant source of dis­cus­sion.

“(In re­al­ity), less than one per cent of all ex­ports (re­quests) are de­nied (to In­dia). They are not de­nied be­cause of In­dia. They are de­nied be­cause of global US li­cens­ing poli­cies. We do not share cer­tain tech­nolo­gies with any­body in the world,” the of­fi­cial as­serted.

The per­cep­tion in In­dia that the de­nial of such tech­nolo­gies is re­flec­tive of In­dia-US re­la­tion­ship is far from the truth, the of­fi­cial said.

Ac­cord­ing to the of­fi­cial, In­dia be­ing recog­nised as a “ma­jor de­fence part­ner puts it on par with our treaty al­lies”.—INP
