According to a representative for the Chinese Foreign Ministry on Monday, military cooperation between nations should not jeopardise regional peace and stability, target any third parties, or even hurt their interests. Days after many defence and business pacts were inked between India and the US, there was a response.

In response to a number of recent defence and business agreements between India and the US, including a deal on armed drones as well as a joint production agreement for jet engines to power military aircraft, China said on Monday that cooperation between nations should not threaten regional peace and stability and target any third party.

According to Mao Ning, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, “China has long held that military cooperation between states should not threaten regional peace and stability, target any third party, or even harm any third party’s interests.”

During Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s state visit to Washington last week, a number of commercial and defence agreements were announced, and a Russian state-run news outlet wanted her opinion on them.

In order to jointly produce fighter jet engines for the TEJAS MK-2 of the Indian Air Force, General Electric Aerospace has announced that it has signed an agreement with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

General Atomics received a purchase order from India for armed MQ-9B SeaGuardian drones. India’s capacity for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance will improve as a result of this cutting-edge technology.

In comparison to the older MQ-1 Predator, the General Atomics MQ-9 “Reaper” armed drone has nine times the horsepower and can carry a payload that is 500% larger. Additionally, the MQ-9 UAV gives the warfighter long-duration, continuous surveillance, and strike capability.
