The Philippines, which is in the process of purchasing BrahMos missiles from India, reached out to India for an explanation following the accidental firing of an Indian missile that landed in Pakistan. Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, a senior minister in the Philippines cabinet, met with Indian ambassador Shambhu S Kumaran in Manila to discuss the incident. Kumaran assured Lorenzana that there were no technical issues with the missile system and that an investigation was underway. The Philippines had signed a deal to buy three batteries of the BrahMos missile in January, and the deal is valued at nearly $375 million, marking India’s first significant defense export. While the missile is a joint venture with Russia, Kumaran emphasized India’s confidence in the missile system. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army confirmed that an unarmed Indian supersonic missile landed in Pakistani territory on March 10, prompting the Indian government to acknowledge the accidental firing and order a high-level investigation.
