Can't compromise India's security, no arms to Pakistan: Israel

Jun 13 2013, 12:48pm CDT | by

Jerusalem/Kolkata, June 13 (IANS) Israel has denied having sold military equipment to Pakistan and said it could do nothing to compromise its excellent strategic relations with India.

Jerusalem/Kolkata, June 13 — Israel has denied having sold military equipment to Pakistan and said it could do nothing to compromise its excellent strategic relations with India.

"The State of Israel categorically denies having sold military equipment of any kind to Pakistan," Israel's defence ministry said in a statement released to the media.

"Israel would not do anything that could undermine India's security."

It said Israel has a strategic relationship with India, the strongest democracy in the world - which, like Israel, "deals with terrorist threats and serves as a major anchor in global international relations".

"The State of Israel does nothing that could compromise its excellent relations with India," it said.

The ministry issued the statement following a report in the Haaretz newspaper Tuesday which cited official reports from Britain indicating that Israel had sold defence equipment to Pakistan and other countries such as Morocco.

In the statement, the ministry officials said that within the next few days, Israel would ask the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, which is responsible for issuing export permits in Britain, "for details of the information that was published in the official reports", Israeli media reported Wednesday.

Israeli Ambassador to India Alon Ushpiz also denied the reports and said his country has recently adopted a policy not to supply security or weapon systems to Pakistan.

"We are not selling security and weapon systems to Pakistan. It is our policy which we have implemented very recently not to sell weapon system to Pakistan," Ushpiz told reporters on the sidelines of an interaction organised by industry lobby CII in Kolkata.

Defence cooperation has been critical to the expansion of ties between India and Israel since the establishment of bilateral diplomatic relations in 1992. Israel has become India's second largest arms supplier after Russia.

While arms sales constitute the largest chunk of Indo-Israeli defence cooperation, other forms of collaboration have taken place. Both countries recognise that terror is a threat, particularly after the 2008 Mumbai attack, and Israel has offered to cooperate in fighting terrorism, including intelligence-sharing, counter-terrorist training, and joint exercises.

Both countries have also exchanged military visits in an effort to expand military-to-military ties. Israel has supplied India with radar systems for airborne early warning and missile defence.

There are no diplomatic relations between Israel and Pakistan. Pakistan has also denied that its military had purchased equipment from Israel.

Indian Patients Lose under Indian Patent Regime

Sep 12 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: National Center for Policy Analysis

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Global Intellectual Property Center, India ranks last in its list of 25 countries when it comes to intellectual property laws. NCPA Senior Fellow John Graham explains how the country's patent laws hurt Indian patients: because few drugs receive strong patent protection, drug-makers are loath to sell their medicines in India. Because of India's weak intellectual property regi ...

The world is more frightening and complex than ever. We are in more danger. We are less aware. We are nearing a war to end all wars. We are closer to death--metaphorical or literal. So say the pundits, at least. Indeed, with the reach of the media--and particularly news--it's easy to believe we're in constant danger--physical and cultural. But it's also somehow too convenient to think th ...

Change Culture, Not Cabs: Woman-Only Taxis and Commodifying Female Fear

Sep 8 2014 1:59pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

SheTaxis (known as SheRides in New York City) is a newly-launched app that will help women-only passengers find women-only taxi drivers. If you are a woman, the creators argue, it makes sense to use this car service, because taking taxis and Ubers driven by men can be dangerous. There is a whole lot of money to be made helping women adapt to this problem. This approach to "keeping women safe" is based on the sex segregati ...
