On the sidelines of the 7th Joint Defence Cooperation Committee (JDCC) meeting currently underway in New Delhi, Air Marshal (Retd.) Donny Ermawan Taufanto, Secretary General of the Ministry of Defence (Kemhan RI) for the Republic of Indonesia, met with AD Rane, the CEO & Managing Director of BrahMos Aerospace. The discussions focused on exploring future avenues for defence collaboration between India and Indonesia.

The JDCC meeting, co-chaired by Defence Secretary Shri Giridhar Aramane from India and Air Marshal Taufanto, signifies the growing importance of defence relations between the two strategic partners. India and Indonesia have been engaged in discussions regarding the potential sale of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles for some time now. This meeting comes as another indicator of progress on that front.

India has also offered a wider range of Indian-made defence equipment to Indonesia in a bid to strengthen their joint military capabilities. The JDCC platform provides a space for both nations to explore potential areas of collaboration and address shared security interests in the region.

This development comes in the wake of the India-Indonesia relationship being elevated to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership in 2018. This partnership has broadened the scope of bilateral cooperation beyond traditional areas to encompass defence industry, science & technology, and more. Defence cooperation is seen as a crucial pillar of this growing strategic partnership.

The existing defence relationship between India and Indonesia is already robust, marked by regular military-to-military exchanges, high-level visits, capacity building programs, and joint participation in peacekeeping missions. The 7th JDCC meeting is expected to further solidify this partnership and pave the way for future collaborations in the defence sector.
