India threatens to cut weapon purchases from UK (Send in arms ‘sales rep’ Cameron)

India is threatening to cut its weapon purchases from the UK. New Delhi is angry over the outcome of the UK-sponsored global Arms Trade Treaty. It feels that its concerns relating to arms supplies to terror groups have been totally ignored.

In response, India has postponed the visit of a delegation — comprising of the chiefs of its army, navy and air force — to the UK while no fresh dates have been announced.

Global arms sales are dominated by the United States and Russia, which account for 30 percent and 26 percent of weapons exported worldwide respectively. China replaced Britain which was among the top five arms-dealing countries between 2008 and 2012.
