Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today said there is a growing interest among various countries in the Indian missiles and the government wants to sell them to the friendly nations.
Ms Sitharaman was speaking at an event organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry.
The Minister, citing negotiations over aspects like cost, said arriving at a decision on a deal is at times “frustrating,” but the interest in the Indian missiles is “sustained.”
The defence minister said, she will address the defence attaches posted in Indian missions abroad to encourage them to market the capabilities of the Indian manufacturing experts.
The missions and embassies of all nations have a defence attache, usually a senior armed forces official, who takes care of the country’s defence needs with the particular nation he is posted in. Similar is the case with India.
