Cooperation Military

President Obama not only received a hard blow in the November 2 elections. Moments before his trip to the India were announced by the Ministry of defence of that country, his refusal to sign two agreements in that area with the United States. Why? Very simple, the India foresees the possible cooling of diplomatic relations with other strategic partners. Without a doubt that most concerns him is Russia. This country in the last decade has been the largest supplier of weapons and military equipment for the India. According to the Yearbook of the Centre’s analysis of the trade world weapons (ACMA) in the period 2002-2009, exports of Russian arms to the India totaled 9874 million dollars, United States appears in fifth place with $ 565 million. On the other hand the biggest obstacle in relations between India and United States today, is the agreement of cooperation logistics (LSA) and the media and defence memorandum of systems interoperability (CISMOA): in the case of the LSA the same aims that American troops can make use of the infrastructure of the India military.

The CISMOA focused to improve the ability to perform joint actions between the armed forces of India and United States. President Obama was thought to sign both agreements on the visit to India, the refusal of the Ministry of defence of that country was a defeat for the United States. Although the last word is not such as working committees with the aim of contributing to the debate on the documents were created. In the case of the LSA military argument is that the same would be useless for his country, since the India, unlike United States, lacks the need to ensure the activity of its armed forces in another hemisphere. As to the permanence of U.S.

warships in ports, the India and the maintenance of the military aviation of United States bases in the country would communicated a message unfavourable to strategic partners, mainly to Russia. In the case of the CISMOA deemed unnecessary since the India is not military partner of the United States. No doubt a difficult situation for the Obama administration at the strategic level – geopolitical. We must not discard medium-term an alliance between India and Russia, to counteract the advancement of the economic, political and military might of China in Asia, which would be very negative for us interests in the region.
