India In Discussion With Vietnam to Sell Akash, Brahmos missiles
BRAHMOS Supersonic Cruise Missile

India has held many discussions to sell its indigenously developed surface-to-air Akash missile and supersonic Bramhos missile to Vietnam.

India and Vietnam share a strategic partnership. Defense cooperation, including supply of defense equipment, is an important aspect of this partnership, Press Trust of India reported Friday.

“Both countries have held discussions on range of issues in this regard,” Subhash Bhamre, Minister of State in the Ministry of Defence said in a written reply in Lok Sabha on whether the government has any plans to sell Akash and Bramhos to the Southeast Asian nation.

A committee of experts was constituted by Ministry of Defence under the chairmanship of Lt Gen (retd) D B Shekatkar to recommend measures to enhance combat capability and rebalance defence expenditure of the armed forces, Bhamre said. The committee has submitted its final report in December 2016.

An internal committee has been constituted within the Ministry to analyse the report, identify the recommendations to be accepted and to frame the key action points as well as a roadmap for their implementation, he said.
