New Delhi: India is establishing Defence Wings at a number of new locations across the world to give a fillip to defence cooperation outreach, said Chief of Derence Staff General Manoj Pande on Nov 3.
Speaking during the Chanakya Defence Dialogue at Manekshaw Centre in Delhi, he said, “in military domain, we understand our role in the multilateral engagement architecture. We are keen to enhance the scope and scale of our joint exercises, interoperability, sub-regional perspectives and sharing of best practices, with our friendly foreign partner nations.”
“To give a fillip to our defence cooperation outreach, we are establishing Defence Wings at new locations across the world. Our national resolve to achieve self-reliance in defence hardware is also being enabled by a resurgent Indian defence Industry,” he added.
Chanakya Defence Dialogue – a flagship National Security Event, being organised by the Indian Army and the Centre of Land Warfare Studies.
“We are now faced with an escalating conflict in West Asia. These instabilities and challenges are compounded by notable economic turbulence and the weaponization of a multitude of attributes and domains from information to supply chains. Issues like radicalization, terrorism, piracy, illegal migration, refugees and climate change, add to the bouquet of global concerns,” he said.
On this occasion, Gen Pande also felicitated Paralympic Team Members of the Indian Army who participated in the recently concluded Asian Para Games 23.
