Roshan Writes: Ballistic missile and its proliferation are transforming the nature of warfare. The deterrence factor associated with this technology cannot be underestimated. In the modern age, no nation can think of a full-fledged war and if some nation becomes aggressive and think that it can bulldoze its way, they should think twice about the consequences.
Bhatnagar writes: ‘Defence Cooperation’ has been one of the pillars of the multi-dimensional ‘Special and Privileged Strategic Partnership’ between India and Russia. ‘Military Diplomacy’ initiatives focusing on enhanced military to military engagements/interactions and reenergised defence cooperation can rejuvenate the overall bilateral relations; a geopolitical imperative for maintenance of global and regional ‘Balance of Power’ and ‘Bridging of Gaps’.
