Abstract

The strategic partnership between India and Israel is wellestablished and improving with the passage of time. Both countries have joint collaboration in many areas, including the serious facelift of the Indian military courtesy Israeli defence firms. Both are also cooperating in the space programme which would give the Indian military dominance in information warfare. The counterterrorism and intelligence sharing between the two would help India add network-centric and electronic warfare capabilities and learn modern techniques for the contemporary combat environment. This defence partnership is likely to create a strategic imbalance in the region, compelling neighbouring Pakistan (and others) to look for countermeasures.
