    "I'm excited by the opportunities we have with India by the work that the Secretary of Defence has done and the Assistant Secretary of Defence Kendall has done with regard to the DTTI, the defence initiative with India, to help them build up their military and help them build an aircraft carrier, and aircraft carrier capability," Harris said in response to a question.

    India presents a wonderful opportunity to the United States, a top US Pacific command official has told lawmakers as the Obama Administration proceeds ahead with its ambitious plan to strengthen its defence ties with India.

    "India presents a wonderful opportunity for us. They share our values and our norms. One of my objectives is to improve that relationship with India," Admiral Harry B Harris, Commander of the US Pacific Command (PACOM) told members of Senate Armed Services Committee during a hearing on maritime security strategy in the Asia Pacific.

    Sir,you must have listned to the very famous dialogue from bollywood movie DABANG.."agar budhe sher(USA) ko apni badsahat kayam rakhni hai toh usko apne bacchon(High end technology) ki kurbani deni hi padti hai. "The rise of china and their control of dollar up to some extent (US fedral bank bonds)causing US to have strategic partnership with India which is a NAM nation to keep china in check....It is in the intrest of the US to bolester ties with India....And guess what IAF is going to get the additional numbers of c17 globemasters who's production line has been closed in the US..The negotiations are going on and the contract will be finalise during next fiscal...Chinook+Apache longbow+M777 ultra light howitzer guns(For which OFB may get TOT to licence build them in India) and a lot more....

    Is this information available in the media right now? The last I heard the production line has already closed, so the only choice is to dip into American inventory.

    No not now but i think it will come to the public domain somewhere in march/april 2016...But yes talks are going on under DTTI and Gov to Gov mode on a lot of projects...Washington DC has proposed a list of some 25+ high end tech under make in Indiathrough DTTI route and various other projects and defence related gears under G2G mode...The american side is ready on many fronts and they have established an office inwashington DC to help india capability building, the delay is from our side....Actually all the discussion on DTTI and agreements where both countries needs converge has been listed out when Obama was our guest at republic day parade.....
