    India’s foreign Military Bases and Security pacts

    Post  RoYaN on Sun Jul 15, 2012 8:21 pm

    India, Mozambique sign bilateral security co-operation pact:)
    New Delhi: India and Mozambique have signed a bilateral security co-operation agreement as part of efforts to strengthen ties.

    The pact was signed by Minister of State for Home Mullappally Ramachandran and Mozambique Minister of Interior Jose Mandra at Maputo yesterday.

    Earlier, Ramachandran called on the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Mozambique, Henrique Banze.

    The two leaders also discussed cooperation between the two countries and ways to develop their relations further in various fields for mutual benefit of the two countries.

    The Minister also interacted with the Indian diaspora in Mozambique at a reception hosted by the High Commissioner of India to Mozambique Ashok K Amrohi.

    There are about 25,000 people of Indian origin who have been living in Mozambique for generations.

    Ramachandran is on a three-day visit to Mozambique.

    India tries to counter China influence in east africa. India also operates a monitoring station in northern Madagascar.

    These 2 countries are higly undeveloped and Madagascar also suffers of constant army mutinies and political crisis.

    I am sure with cooperation they can improve the situation in both countries.

    This is a good thing.

    India’s foreign military bases - security pacts

    Post  ricky123 on Sat Oct 27, 2012 6:48 am

    Ayni is the much-spoken word in Indo-Russian strategic engagement. The Ayni air base in Tajikistan happens to be India’s first and only foreign military base. And yet, this base is not fully operational for the simple reason that an air base cannot be operational without deployment of fighter aircraft, something that is unlikely to happen without Russia’s green signal. India’s Ayni dream is Russia-locked.

    The issue will inevitably figure during the highest Indo-Russian engagement when Russian President Vladimir Putin holds talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. It is another matter that the issue is unlikely to find a mention in the publicised talking points between the two sides, like it has seldom been.

    Ayni is going to be among the high points of discussions between India and Russia at their 13th annual summit in New Delhi in December. India has spent $70 million between 2002 and 2010 to renovate the Ayni base. India has extended the Ayni runway to 3,200 metres and installed state-of-the-art navigational and air defence equipment there. And yet, India has not been able to make Ayni truly a military base that fits to the classic definition of an air base.

    All these years the Indians have run into the Russian wall as Moscow has been unrelenting in its stand that it doesn’t want foreign powers to deploy fighter aircraft in its backyard and a former territory. The Russians have thus far steadfastly refused to grant this favour to its age-old strategic partner – India.

    Why strategic purpose does this airbase serve to India ?

    Can't say I've followed the issue very closely.

    But they won't be allowed to go across the border or launch anything into Pakistani airspace will they?

    Honestly I wish Russia itself wasn't trying to keep its troops in these nations...we end up paying for their security. Cool deal :/

    I think India will have to join a security organisation like CSTO to have any military or intelligence aircraft deployed on Russias backyard now be it to just monitor Afghanistan ( which US may not like it ) or Pakistan.

    That would open the gates to other nations wanting such a previlage , so likely this place wont see any military aircraft deployed from India but some intelligence cooperation.

    Real game is going to start when US+NATO leaves Afghanistan and Karzai Govt is going to get its a$$ kicked. India doesn't need airbase in Central Asia, we should not get involved in Central Asian politics. As far as Pakistan is concerned, it will always be better to do a Naval blockade then have 12 fighters from North and keep spending money on oversees airbase, even in peacetime. And India is doing good in Afghanistan anyway, with soft power only. We should not play the game in Afghanistan according to Pakistan rules. They will win as they have Islam card. Rather have friendly relations with Afghan people on ground level and not pick sides between various ethnicities in Afghanistan. Don't make stupid movies about Afghanistan like Kabul Express.

    As an Indian and with greate remorse and honesty I say that India would never ever going to do against Pakistan , so keeping bases near Pakistan is useless.

    We could have attacked Pakistan when their terrorist attacked Indian Parliament , can you imagine if such an attack took place on US Senate or Russsian Parliament from a known source what would they have done ?

    Even after 26/11 we did nothing just begging pakistan to give us Hafiz Sayeed or other terrorist that has been traced to pakistan by even US and India and every one knows still nothing.

    Its mearly a hog wash trying to mislead indian public , Fact is that India is shit scared to fight any war with Pakistan because the Political Class is shit scared what will happen to them so they thing its better to take hits and carry on because Indian public is getting affected and not political class as they are safe with all security and status with Tax Payers money and ordinary Indians die

    ^^^^ I don't care about Parliament attack honestly speaking. Politicians make a big issue when their house gets attacked. That's why i am against any Indian military involvement in central Asia and Afghanistan because we don't have the leaders who can handle these type of politics. neither do Indian citizens have will to do anything like this. indian population has a point as Pakistan is not their biggest problem of ordinary Indian. Govt. (all levels) Corruption, poverty and slow judiciary is. If you want to do anything in India, its impossible to do without paying bribe to some corrupt official, fighting court battles is ridiculously slow that one would rather reach a compromise even if it means overall loss. But new generation is more impatient and India will change considerably in next 20 years IMO.

    Just keep navy strong because if a war happens with Pak, naval blockade will be essential, if s**t hits the fan, forcing them to surrender or use nuke(bad result for everybody, but preventable).

    India to Supply Afghanistan With Russian Helicopters to Fight Taliban

    India will supply Afghanistan with four Russia-made attack helicopters within the next two months to help in its fight against the Taliban militant group, an Indian broadcaster cited its sources as saying.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The delivery of the Indian Air Force Mi-25 helicopter gunships was agreed during a visit by Afghan Deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil to New Delhi earlier this week, the NDTV television network said.

    India and Afghanistan have stepped up their security cooperation this year in light of increased militant activity.

    Late September marked the largest advance by the Taliban in years, with militants seizing the provincial capital Kunduz after months of fighting with the Afghan army.
