While the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was a joint development between India and Russia, the sale of the systems to the Philippines was a transaction between the two countries, and India would be able to move ahead on a “bilateral basis”, India said, amid the global developments following the Russian war in Ukraine.

  • This is a frontline system in the Indian defence forces and the fact that we are willing to share was appreciated by the Philippines.
  • There is definitely in terms of the Philippines ‘ self-defence national security requirements, a clear requirement on the part of their armed force for this capability.
  • To a question, if China may have an issue with the sale, the envoy referred to a Philippines statement that it saw it as a self-defence platform and so he did not see “how this can be a concern in other capitals.”
