Make the contents of Defence Framework Agreement with US public: CPI-M

Sitaram Yechuri

New Delhi: The CPI-M on Monday asked the government to make public the contents of the 10-year Defence Framework Agreement with the US.

In a letter sent to Defence Minister, Manohar Parrikar, CPI-M general secretary, Sitaram Yechury said he (Parrikar) signed the agreement.

“The reports about this agreement have also appeared in the media. However, the text of the agreement has so far not been made public,” said the Communist Party of India-Marxist leader.

“Last time, such a Defence Framework Agreement was signed in June 2005. At that time, the text of the agreement was available in the public domain within a few days.

“Since this is an important agreement concerning defence and security ties, I request you to release the text of the agreement for public information,” Yechury said. (IANS)
