Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister of Malaysia Dato Sri Mohammad Najib Tun Haji Abdul Razak -- on a weeklong visit to India -- today visited the BrahMos Weapons Design Complex here.

BrahMos CEO and MD AS Pillai, who received the high-level delegation accompanying the Malaysian Deputy PM, highlighted the technological advancement made by the country with this high-tech project.

The delegation was shown the actual missile hardware and the sub-systems besides a presentation explaining the technical features of the BrahMos system jointly developed by India and Russia.

After seeing the presentation, Deputy Prime Minister Abdul Razak said his country looked forward to stronger defence cooperation with India which had made remarkable technical progress in high-technology projects.

Dato Razak -- here along with a high-powered delegation at the invitation of Defence Minister Mukherjee -- will also tour Mumbai, Nasik and Bangalore visiting important defence establishments -- like Bharat Electronics Limited, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and Indian Space Research Organisation -- showcasing India's techonological leap in building weapons systems.

Indo-Malaysian cooperation in the field of defence was formalised by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on Defence Cooperation between the two countries in 1993. The primary areas of cooperation so far have been in the field training exchanges, visits between officers of their respective Armed Forces and visits of naval ships to each other's ports.
