LEMOA, India,USA, Pakistan

India and the United States signed Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) in Washington DC on 29th August 2016. By virtue of this agreement, both India and United States will be able to access each other’s military facilities for fuelling and logistics support on a reimbursable basis. This agreement permits these two states to use each other’s military and naval facilities for ‘specific type of activities’. These activities are limited to joint military exercises, training, port calls, humanitarian missions and other military activities that both sides mutually agree to undertake. This agreement is part of a series of advancements in the U.S.-India security relationship. It will strengthen Indian navy outreach and will enable it to undertake far seas operations. This agreement has been signed at a time when U.S.-China tensions are increasing in the Asia-Pacific region and U.S.-Pakistan strategic relationship is being redefined. The CSCR has produced a research brief which seeks to explain the background and significance of the LEMOA and the implications of this agreement for regional countries.
