new security contextIndia and the US should deepen their defence cooperation United States Defence Secretary Leon Panettas visit to Delhi underlines the sea change in the Asian security environment and the new imperatives for deepening strategic cooperation between the two countries Although India and the US launched defence cooperation in the middle of the last decadeits full potential for security cooperation remains unrealised To be sureAmerica has become an important supplier of arms to India The armed forces of the two countries have more bilateral military exercises with each other than with any other country Yet there is no denying the widespread sense that the momentum in bilateral defence relations has begun to lose steam The US has been too narrowly focused on getting India to sign the so-called foundational agreements These include the Logistics Supply Agreement (LSA)the Communications Interoperability and Security Memorandum of Agreement (CISMOA)and the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA) If Delhi has been unable to lend political direction to the defence exchanges with the USbureaucratic inertia in the Pentagon prevents Washington from customising a unique partnership with South Block But the current global strategic context facing the two countries is vastly different from the situation in 2005when Delhi and Washington signed the framework agreement for defence cooperation For onethere is a financial imperative that demands India and the US to re-evaluate the current premises of defence cooperation Delhiwhich stares at lower economic growth rates in the coming years and the implications of the recent depreciation of the rupeeneeds to get a better defence bang for its buckdevelop a more purposeful and cost-conscious approach to military modernisationand appreciate the importance of long-term defence industrial cooperation with the US Washingtons defence planners are confrontedfor the first time in decadeswith a financial constraint on American national security strategy The US needs long-term partnerships with countries like India to maintain its defence industrial base as fiscal austerity and the rising cost of arms production bite the Pentagon The US faced few threats to its primacy in Asia a decade ago TodayAmerica finds itself exhausted after two prolonged land wars to Indias west and challenged by the rapid rise of Chinese power to our east As an anxious Asia looks to the US to restore the balance of powerWashington is scrambling to reinforce its military presence in the Western Pacific At the annual Shangri-La conference in Singapore over the weekendPanetta outlined the US plans to deploy more forces in Asia and develop a new doctrine to cope with the assertion of Chinese military power Ten years agoDelhi had every reason to believe its external security environment was a benign one Today India must cope with the prospects of greater turbulence on its north- western frontiers amidst the downsizing of international military presence in Afghanistan and of the Talibans return to power in Kabul with the support of the Pakistan army Towards its north and eastIndia will have to deal with the consequences of rising Chinese military powerand to its souththe growing presence of Beijings naval power Delhi can no longer ignore the widening power gap with Beijing Chinas GDP is nearly four

cooperation present themselves to Panetta and his Indian interlocutors FirstIndia and the US must move away from a buyer-seller relationship on arms transfers and lay the basis for greater defence industrial collaborationco-production of weapons systems and joint research in advanced areas SecondDelhi and Washington have a shared interest in stabilising Afghanistan as its armed forces take responsibility for the security of their nation Until recentlythe US had relied on the Pakistan army to secure its objectives in Afghanistan; today Washington has begun to acknowledge Rawalpindi as a major obstacle to its goals in Afghanistan India and the US must find ways to coordinate their policies in Afghanistan and institutionalise consultations on the security situation there Delhi and Washington also have big stakes in nudging Pakistan towards the path of political moderationeconomic modernisation and regional integration Threeas Asias waters become the lifeline for the worlds trade and prosperityIndia and the US agree on the importance of working together on maritime security But they are yet to devise a framework for operational cooperation in the waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans FinallyIndia and the US have a common interest in constructing a stable balance of power in Asia Delhi and Washington must now translate their political declarations into credible security cooperation in the region Three and a half years agothe Obama administration declared the centrality of Pakistan in stabilising Afghanistan and proclaimed a China-first policy in Asia India objected to both the propositions Much has happened since then to turn those American premises on their head Washington is a lot more realistic now and is eager to deepen the defence partnership with

Related News Some months agoPrime Minister Manmohan Singh told states that urgent and pragmatic decisions need to be taken in the water sectorfor water security is an issue on which everyone will swim or sink together Nowthe Centre has unveiled the broad contours of its proposed but contentious National Water Framework Lawwhich has some some ambitious proposals While the concept of right to water one of the highlights of the proposed law is largely a rhetorical slogan with an eye on electionsthe plan to introduce economic pricing amounts to a paradigm shift and is in line with the controversial Dublin principles recognising water as an economic good The idea behind introducing the concept of economic and differential pricing is to address the issue of excessive use of watercut down its wastage and to encourage conservation and reuse It is a welcome concept as far as the fact that nominal pricing of water has over the years led to unbridled use of groundwater goes Akin to the polluter pays principlethe law also wants big water-using industries to pay more Industries consuming more than one million cubic metres of water a year may soon have to file water returns on the lines of income-tax returns While these are positive suggestionsthey are contentious too Worldwideactivists and NGOs have been questioning the Dublin principles itself One other argument is that instead of economic pricingwater should be reasonably priced so that it provides for cost recovery while safeguarding ecological requirements and access to safe water for the poor In Indiathe Centre will face a different kind of challenge as the proposed law would rekindle the federal overreach argument as water is a state subject At the discussion stage itselfmany states including Congress-ruled ones like KeralaAndhra Pradesh and Haryana opposed such a law arguing it would impinge on their rights Needless to saymost of the opposition-ruled states were against it Given the fact that many proposalsnotably regarding a National Counterterrorism Centrehave fallen by the wayside after getting caught in Centre-state conflictsit is to be seen whether the government can convince a large number of states opposed to such a broad law The only way forward is to get the states on boardor else this ambitious reform will remain on paper Manoj is a special correspondent based in Delhi
