BENGALURU: As missile production has seen an increase in the country, India is planning to export missiles, said Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, here on Friday.

Speaking at a programme to mark the inaugural flight of HTT-40, he said that Brahmos will be among the missiles that would be exported. "We have increased the production of Aakash missiles from 200 to 500. This is also true with other missiles. We will export the weapons without affecting our demand," he said.

To a question, he said that Chinese transgression along the border has been a historic issue. "Overall transgression has reduced a lot as compared to the past. Even in the latest incident we pushed them back," he said.

On Aero India, he said that the next version of it will be held in Bengaluru.
