Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, stated on February 14, 2023, that India does not consider offering “sermons or cut-and-dry” responses to nations that are in need of help.
Mr. Singh also urged for coordinated measures to address urgent security problems, such as the threat from terrorism, in a speech to his colleagues from several nations here at Aero India.
The Union Defense Minister stated that India has always chosen a systematic approach to countering such safety issues and does not trust handling them in the “old paternalistic or neo-colonial ways.”
All countries are treated equally by us. Because of this, we do not think that a nation’s domestic problems should be solved by forcing exterior or supranational solutions. “We don’t believe in preaching or offering simple fixes that disregard the national values and limitations of the countries in need of help,” the man stated.
Mr. Singh pointed out that India supports its partner nations’ efforts to enhance their capabilities so they can determine their own future.
He remarked, in remarks that are taken to be an apparent allusion to China, “There are countries that are wealthier, militarily or scientifically more developed than others, but that does not give them the right to prescribe their answers to the countries in need of protection.”
This “top-down method” to issue solving, according to the Minister of Defense, has never been long-term viable. He claimed that India provides friendly foreign countries with improved defence collaboration.
The defence minister stated, “We provide a collaboration that is accommodating of national interests and abilities.” We want to construct with you; we want to start with you; we want to construct with you; and we want to expand with you.
“We want to build symbiotic partnerships where we can benefit from one another, develop together, and make everything work for everyone,” he said. The largest aerospace exhibit in Asia, Aero India, was opened on Monday by Prime Minister Modi.
