Iran's Ambassador to New Delhi Gholam Reza Ansari and Indian Defense Minister A.K. Antony discussed ways of expanding mutual cooperation between two friendly states in defense fields.
During the Saturday meeting, the Indian minister and the Iranian diplomat stressed the development of bilateral defense cooperation, exploring ways to expand relations in this regard.
Pointing to achievements made by Iran and India in the defense and military industry, the Iranian envoy expressed Tehran’s readiness to enhance relations and exchange experience with New Delhi.
Years ago, Indian technicians assisted in IRIAF advanced maintenance training and IAIO complex overhaul of IRIAF MiG-29 fighter aircraft. So such a potential level of cooperation (if this was a similar level of cooperation discussed) would not be considered groundbreaking but rather something of a resumption.
