US working on changing export control policy on India: Defence Secretary Ashton Carter
SINGAPORE: The US is working "very hard" on changing its "outdated" export control policy on India as the two strategic partners seek to continue working together on a large number of projects, including in the military sector, Defence Secretary Ashton Carter said today. "The United States is working very hard on changing India's status in the US export system which is also somewhat outdated," he said in response to a question on what was expected from PrimeMinister Narendra Modi's visit to the US next week. He said he along with his Indian counterpart Manohar Parrikar would "identify new ways" to co-operate in defence sector in advance of Modi's visit. The US and India are committed, as part of our growing security coverage, to co-development and co-production of military capabilities, Carter said at the 15th Shangri-La Dialogue here. That is something we have not had since the birth of the modern Indian state, and we had two systems which grew up apart and we are trying to bring them together - that would be very productive thing to do," he said. We have a large number of projects we are working on together which will be developed and launched in coming months" elaborated Carter, adding that he had recently visited India's aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya.
