With an aim to counter and monitor Chinese influence in the Indian Ocean region, India will procure long endurance drones from the United States. According to a report in an international media outlet, India is expected to splurge around £2.2 billion on 22 unmanned machines to boost its surveillance of the nation’s fleet. The step is intended to keep an eye on Chinese movement in the Indian Ocean. The report even says that US President Donald Trump has already approved the sale but the transaction still needs to be signed off. Though the transaction is yet to be finalised but still it was a key topic of discussion during US Defence Secretary James Mattis’ visit to India this week
