It, however, does not mean that troops of one country will be stationed in the other country, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar said at a joint press conference with US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter on Tuesday.
Parrikar said the growing interaction between armed forces of the two countries is a "significant aspect of bilateral relationship", pointing out that India has more joint exercises with the US than any other country in the world.
"In this context, Secretary Carter and I agreed, in principle, to conclude a Logistic Exchange Memorandum of Agreement in the coming months," Parrikar said.
Parrikar said the draft of the agreement will be ready in a month.
Asked if it will mean the presence of US troops in India, Carter said: "No one is talking about the US troops on Indian soil." He added that the details of the logistic support will be decided by the two governments.
Carter is on a three-day visit to India. He is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi later on Tuesday. (IANS)
