The strengthening of cooperation mechanisms between the two militaries must be rewarded in the context of an increasingly aggressive China, which threatens a large number of countries in its vicinity and beyond, and which has challenged several established norms and aspects of international relations. The agreement will allow India and the United States to exchange important military information, such as advanced satellite and topographic data, including maps, nautical and aerial maps, as well as geophysical, geodesic, geomagnetic and gravitational data. And what is the big picture of the signing of these fundamental pacts with the United States and the way forward? The signing of LEMOA was in itself a confirmation of mutual trust between the two military personnel and its application will strengthen confidence. It took nearly a decade to negotiate LEMOA, and the exercise somehow filled the confidence gap between India and the United States, paving the way for the other two founding pacts. 1. General Security of Military Information Security Agreement (GSOMIA) in 2002. In 2019, an agreement was signed for the extension of follow-up measures – Annex to Industrial Security (ISA). The basic exchange and cooperation agreement signed Tuesday between India and the United States completes the four bases needed to advance defense relations. Declared in 10 points Have signed India and the United States BECA, the last of the four basic agreements for strategic relations. BECA stands for Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement for Geo-Spatial Cooperation. 8. UPA Defense Minister A.K. Antony has consistently stoned every effort to sign one of the founding agreements with the U.S.
military. LEMOA is very useful for cooperation between the Indian and American navies, as the two countries work closely together in the Indo-Pacific space. To put the usefulness of this agreement in simple terms, it is like being able to stop in a friend`s garage or workshop to refuel your car or have it repaired if you are away from your own home or workshop. Previously, India signed three basic agreements: 2016 the Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA); 2018 the Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement (COMCASA); In 2019, the Industrial Security Annex (ISA) – the extension of the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), signed in 2002, was adopted. The signing of BECA stems from the signing of three other key pacts between the two countries, which have been identified as key to significantly strengthening strategic relations. The first quartet is entitled The Agreement on the General Security of Military Information (GSOMIA), signed by the two countries in 2002. GSOMIA provides specific measures to ensure security standards for the protection of critical information shared by the United States with India. In an important step in 2016, the United States had designated India as a “major defense partner,” which wants to elevate trade in protection and technology trade to a level equivalent to that of its closest allies and partners. The two countries signed the Logistics Exchange Agreement (LEMOA) in 2016, which allows their military to use each other`s bases for repair and replenishment of stocks and to allow closer cooperation.
