Rights Group: Sale of Indian Helicopters Could Violate EU Arms Embargo


A human rights group says the Indian government's plans to sell Burma military helicopters with European components and technology could threaten a European Union arms embargo.

London-based Amnesty International says if India transfers its Advanced Light Helicopter to Burma, then Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Italy and Britain will be violating the 19-year-old arms embargo.

The group says each of those countries provided technology or parts used in the helicopters, including brake systems, fuel tanks and rockets.

India has increased military cooperation with Burma during the past year. In May, India agreed to supply Burma with military equipment in exchange for cooperation fighting anti-Indian separatist groups along their common border.

Burma's military-run government has been accused of taking political opponents into custody, and of violating human rights. The country is under EU and U.S. economic sanctions.
