Agreement Between Us And India

This decision applies only to Mr Narendra Modi. It is based on the fact that, as head of government in Gujarat, he was responsible for the performance of public institutions between February 2002 and May 2002. The Foreign Ministry`s detailed views on this issue are contained in its annual national reports on human rights practices and in the International Report on Freedom of Religion. Both reports reflect the violence that took place in Gujarat from February 2002 to May 2002 and cite the report of the Indian National Human Rights Commission, which states that “the government failed to control the continued violation of the rights of life, liberty, equality and dignity of the people of the state.” [147] In January 2017, Peter Lavoy, Senior Director of South Asian Affairs at the U.S. National Security Council, said the partnership between India and the United States under Barack Obama`s administration had been “incredibly successful.” Lavoy said: “I can tell you definitively that our partnerships have helped thwart several terrorist attacks. Indian and American lives have been saved by this partnership. [235] [236] The United States has four “basic” agreements that it signs with its defence partners. The Pentagon describes the agreements as “routine instruments used by the United States to promote military cooperation with partner countries.” U.S. officials said the agreements are not preconditions for bilateral defence cooperation, but that it would be easier and cheaper to carry out activities such as refueling aircraft or ships in other countries and providing disaster relief. [223] The first of the four agreements, the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), was signed in 2002 by India and the United States. The agreement allows the exchange of military information between the two countries and obliges each country to protect the secret information of others. The second agreement, the Logistics Exchange Agreement (LEMOA), was signed by the two countries on 29 August 2016.

LEMOA allows the military of both countries to use the bases of other countries for post-delivery deliveries or repairs.
