Washington, Sep 27: Defence Minister, AK Antony stated that India is more concerned about the technology transfer and co-production with US rather than mere buyer-seller relation.

"Now, our approach is rather than buyer-seller relations, we want technology transfers, and if possible co-production and joint production,"Antony said during his US tour on Sep 27.

US defence secretary Gates also expressed their willingness to build strong military-to-military ties with India.

"We are looking to expand this relationship in ways that are mutually beneficial," Gates said.

He continued, "They (India) have a big competition going on for a new modern fighter. We'll probably have some conversations about that."

Antony also hinted that they would raise their concern before US that Pakistan is misusing the arms, which were supplied by US to fight against terrorism.

However, Antony claimed that Pakistan used the supplied arms against India.
