General Dimitrios Choupis, Chief of the Hellenic National Defence General Staff (GEETHA), recently concluded an official visit to India at the invitation of his counterpart, General Anil Chauhan. The visit, which lasted until April 11, 2024, aimed to strengthen defense cooperation between the two nations.

While Indian media has speculated about the potential sale of BrahMos missiles, a supersonic cruise missile jointly developed by India and Russia, to Greece, several factors make this unlikely in the near future.

Greece’s membership in NATO presents a roadblock. BrahMos’ integration with NATO systems and potential compatibility issues pose challenges. Additionally, member states have a say in such arms deals, and acquiring a weapon system from outside NATO might raise concerns.

Russia, a key partner in the BrahMos project, might exercise its veto power due to Greece’s continued support for Ukraine in the ongoing conflict. Supplying weapons to a nation actively assisting Ukraine could be deemed contradictory by Russia.

While the BrahMos sale might not happen, the visit likely focused on fostering broader defense cooperation. Areas of potential collaboration include joint military exercises, information sharing, and defense technology exchange.
