New Delhi: India has held a range of talks on the sale of indigenously developed surface-to-air Akash missile and supersonic Brahmos missile to Vietnam, the government on Friday said.

“India and Vietnam share a strategic partnership. Defence cooperation, including the supply of defence equipment, is an important aspect of this partnership. Both countries have held discussions on a range of issues in this regard,” Subhash Bhamre, minister of state in the ministry of defence said in a written reply in Lok Sabha on whether the government has any plans to sell Akash and Brahmos to the Southeast Asian nation.

Responding to another question, Bhamre said a committee of experts was constituted by ministry of defence under the chairmanship of Lt Gen (retd) D.B. Shekatkar to recommend measures to enhance combat capability and rebalance defence expenditure of the armed forces.

“The committee has submitted its final report in December 2016. An internal committee has been constituted within the ministry to analyse the report, identify the recommendations to be accepted and to frame the key action points as well as a roadmap for their implementation,” he said.
