New Delhi: India and the United States are reportedly pushing forward a deal for the supply of Predator drone aircraft in order to complete the project before U.S. President Barack Obama leaves office early next year. The Predator comes in handy, especially during military surveillance.
At the same time, India is also looking to cement many defense and nuclear projects, including a nuclear reactor deal, with the US. It may be noted the US recently gave India the technology to launch fighter aircraft from aircraft carriers.
India hopes Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Obama’s close relation might give pace to the 22 Predator Guardian drones deal, which India is ardently seeking for with the US.
Before the next administration resumes charge and Obama leaves the White House, New Delhi plans to complete the main process of the deal, according to media reports.
