India has handed over the first batch of the supersonic cruise missile BrahMos to the Philippines. In India, BrahMos missile is considered India’s Brahmastra.

First, China built a port here, then an airstrip and then within no time, it created an artificial island here. It also prepared a military base. When other countries and unsc raised questions about China regarding all these things, China claimed that it has a 2000-year-old connection with the South China Sea.

There is a dispute between China and Philippines regarding scarborough shoal Island. China considers them as its part and prevents the Philippines from coming here and Philippines says that all of these are its parts. America has deployed its air defense system in the Philippines. Recently, the Philippines Navy is conducting the biggest and expensive war exercise with America. India handed over BrahMos missile to the Philippines when China was threatening the Philippines. BrahMos missile will further increase the military strength of Philippines. Philippines does not have any such missile.

India was once dependent on other countries for weapons, but today India has emerged as a seller of weapons in Asia. Experts say that by 2026, India can create a market worth 3 billion dollars only with the BrahMos deal. READ ALSO: Green sky Dubai: green sky in Dubai is a sign of future disaster
