US Is India's 2nd Biggest Arms Supplier

This video shows you that US Is India’s 2nd Biggest Arms Supplier.

As New Delhi diversifies its arms purchases, the US is rapidly increasing its arms sales to India, emerging over the last five years as its second biggest supplier by providing 15 percent of its weapons imports, a study by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said.

Washington increased its sales by more than five times compared to the previous five years, the authoritative SIPRI said in its report released this week.

Israel has moved up to the third spot accounting for 11 per cent of India’s imports during the 2013-17 calendar years, SIPRI added.

Although Russia remained by far India’s biggest arms seller, it share of total imports has fallen.

Russia had a 62 per cent share of India’s arms imports during the past five years, down from 79 per cent in 2008-12, according to the report that tracks the global arms trade.

Overall, India is the world’s biggest importer of major arms accounting for 12 percent of the total global imports during the last five years and it increased purchases abroad by 24 per cent compared to the previous five-year period, SIPRI said.

“The tensions between India, on the one side, and Pakistan and China, on the other, are fuelling India’s growing demand for major weapons, which it remains unable to produce itself, Sipri Senior Researcher Siemon Wezeman wrote.

“China, by contrast, is becoming increasingly capable of producing its own weapons and continues to strengthen its relations with Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar through arms supplies,” he wrote.
