Hagel: US, India must improve defense cooperation
Hagel tells New Delhi business leaders and scholars that the two nations must be results oriented and do more to co-develop technology rather than just buy and sell weapons systems.
His speech reflects the hopes and frustrations of America's struggles to forge weapons development agreements with India, a critical ally in the region.
Hagel is leaving here with few concrete agreements, but he pressed for new weapons pacts, including a pilot plan for the two nations to jointly develop a next-generation anti-tank missile.
