India-Africa Defense Relations

  • The India-Africa Defense Dialogue (IADD) was held on the sidelines of DefExpo 2022. The Gandhinagar Declaration was adopted during this dialogue.
  • In this declaration, emphasis has been laid on increasing cooperation in the field of training and military exercises.

The foundation of India-Africa defense relations is based on the following two guiding principles:

  • SAGAR – Security and development for all in the region.
  • Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – The whole world is one family.

According to a report by Exim Bank, India is a major defense exporter to African countries.

Mauritius accounted for 6.6% of total arms exports from India to Africa between 2017-2021. It was followed by Mozambique (5%) and Seychelles (2.3%).
