India-US to set up joint working group in defence industrial sector

New Delhi, Oct 1 (UNI) India and US have agreed to set-up a joint working group in defence industrial security, the Defence Ministry said on Friday.
The decision was taken at an Industrial Security Agreement (ISA) summit between India and the United States, which started on September 27 and concluded here on Friday.
The summit was organised to develop protocol for the exchange of classified information between the defence industries of both the nations.
The ISA was signed in December 2019 during the India-US 2+2 ministerial dialogue, to facilitate the exchange of information.
"During the summit, both the sides agreed in-principle to establish the Indo-US Industrial Security Joint Working Group," the Defence Ministry said in a statement.
This group will meet periodically to align the policies and procedures expeditiously that will allow the defence industries to collaborate on cutting edge defence technologies, the statement added.
The ISA is a part of the General Security Of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), one of the foundational agreements, which India and US signed in 2002.
