India Expands Strategic Ties and Arms Exports with New Military Attachés

India is enhancing its global strategic posture and military diplomacy by deploying new defence attachés across key regions including Ethiopia, Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Philippines, Armenia, and Poland, as part of its broader policy initiative in the face of growing geopolitical rivalries. This includes a notable appointment in Djibouti, a strategic maritime gateway, and a rationalization of military officials in Moscow and London to align with foreign policy priorities. India’s expansion of strategic engagement with Africa aims to counter China’s influence, underscored by the significant induction of the African Union into the G20 under India’s presidency. Additionally, defense ties with the Philippines are being strengthened in response to China’s military assertiveness in the South China Sea, alongside furthering relations with Armenia amid regional tensions and with Poland, reflecting a desire to deepen two-way defense cooperation. A total of 16 defense attachés from the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force will soon assume their positions, marking a significant step in India’s strategic and defense outreach globally.
