          I hope not...because it might lead to transfer of technology keeping in mind that Thailand has recently planned to buy 6 diesel submarines from China, and China might want to use the BrahMos technology to get rid off their insecurity issues. However a joint defence pact to reduce illegal-human trafficking, and pearl fishing in the Andaman seas would be a point to start.
