    Here is a 10-point guide to this story:
    1. Secretary Carter has met with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and said India and the United States have agreed in principle to share military logistics.
    2. Washington and New Delhi have largely agreed to the terms of a new agreement that allows the two militaries to use each other's land, air and naval bases for resupplies, repair and rest.
    3. However, US troops can be in India only on the invitation of the government of India and the agreement isn't binding on either nation.
    4. The new pact - whose text has not yet been finalised - addresses India's earlier concerns about losing its traditional autonomy and being perceived as having entered a military alliance with the US.
    5. India, the world's biggest arms importer, wants access to US technology so it can develop sophisticated weapons at home -- a key part of the PM's "Make in India" campaign to boost domestic manufacturing.
    6. The negotiations on this trip are focusing on the transfer of technology for new generation aircraft carriers to be built in India, jet engines, and helmet-mounted displays for pilots.
    7. The US is also hoping to sell its F-16 or F-18 fighter jets to India as part of a major co-production deal involving more than 100 planes which would be manufactured in India in collaboration with an Indian partner company.
    8. Secretary Carter told NDTV that the recent sale of US F-16s to Pakistan, which India strongly objected to, was based on the assumption that the fighter jets will be used for counter-terrorism operations."We strongly believe in curbing terrorism originating in the territory of Pakistan and we fully recognize that that has affected India in incidents that we deplore," he told NDTV.
    9. The US is keen on working with India to counter China's growing assertiveness in the South China Sea but has clarified that at the moment, it is not considering joint patrolling by an Indo-US fleet in the area.
    10. However, both sides will work closely together in the Indian Ocean, the two sides agreed.

    Thinking about some points for now:

    1) Diego Garcia ... Now will india resupply and refuel that place ... The ships and logistics of that .

    2) USA will have more flight paths and ship routes and whatever to come near india peripheral ... And if there is a emergency and there is 2 seconds to decide ?? India will refuse !! No way ... And that's starts the rock down the road. Mutual agreed has loopholes ... And once it opens ... India does not transverse near usa at all ... Heck not even near Hawaii .

    Make it clear what is going on - I feel we want to get into bed with USA but on our own terms. USA wants to have control .

    I feel solution is that india gets into bed once its in right shape and posture. We are having a half well made suit but not full body ready yet.

    That is with a unsc seat and preferable another round of nuke testing take us to double digits.

    That will allow usa and whoever to decide if they want to be getting in bed and whatever control they can think of such a nuclear weapon state with a unsc seat. And also for india to see if the sweet words of natural partnership is real ... Only for ...

    A complete sell-out to the hegemonistic regime. Even Manmohan Singh(self-professed US stooge) had a modicun of self-esteem and respected India's principle of non-alignment. Modi could have bargained for a full NATO membership, free-services agreement, visa-free travel for Indians, in exchange.

    Changes in geopolitical situation requires changes in geopolitical policies.
    There is no correct path.
    Just hope the govt. knows what it is doing and has a vision of what it is doing.
