US likely to soon announce several billion dollars worth of defence deals with India: Ambassador Juster

United States Ambassador to India Kenneth Juster said, "When I first began working on US India relationship in 2001, there were virtually no defence sales between the United States and India. Today that figure is about 18 billion dollars and there are several billion dollars of additional sales in the pipeline on a range of items, some of which we hope to be announcing in the near term." He was speaking at a press briefing here a day prior to the beginning of the five-day DefExpo 2020 in Uttar Pradesh's capital city of Lucknow.
