Pranay Kotasthane Quoted in The National

Pranay Kotasthane was quoted in an article with The National.

In recent years, the relationship between the India and Israel has increasingly centred on the defence sector. In the three years leading up to March 2016, Israel has become India’s third-largest supplier of weapons in the three years leading up to March 2016, with a sale of arms worth $1 billion.

“Israel’s defence capabilities are complementary to India’s,” said Mr Kotasthane. “Israel has carved a niche for itself in  surveillance equipment and ballistic missile defence systems. These are exactly the areas where [India’s] Defence Research and Development Organization has not delivered. So it made sense to procure these items from Israel.”
