The defence ministry has already finalised the OROP (One Rank One Pension) scheme – Manohar Parrikar
Bhubaneswar: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday said India was planning to export defence materials and training military personnel of at least 38 countries.
“At least 38 countries are sending their defence personnel for training in India. We are encouraging them. We are giving them more slots. We are also considering to supply some sort of defence materials through export or through line of credit to the countries so that they can depend on India for their defence,” Parrikar said at the sideline of an international conference.
Parrikar, however, said he would not be able to reveal names of the countries which are sending their personnel for training due to security reasons. Quoting a shloka from Sanskrit scripture, Parrikar said, “A goat is sacrificed in the altar and no one dares to kill a lion. We will build our position of strength.”
However, Parrikar said, India does not want to dominate any other country but increase its own strength through partnership and friendship. Replying to a question, the Defence Minister said, “We are organisisng a naval exercise in Vishakhapatanam where international fleet will participate. It will be a spectacular show of basic exercise of infrastructure.”
