Strategic Implications of Farkhor Air Base

Hi All,

I recently heard of India's first and only foreign military air base in Tajikistan, which is known as Farkhor air base. Can anyone please throw some light on the strategic implications of this. Also,

1) Why India chose Tajikistan for setting up its military air base (is it because of its proximity to Pakistan or any other reason)?
2) Are there any other countries with their military base in a foreign country?
3) Why did India set up its air base in a foreign land? Wont it be interfering with our Non-Interference foreign policy?
4) Also, is this allowed as per UN norms?


  • tajikistan is the only country other than india to share boundary with pak and china both. the one and the only one reason
    It is Job Hi Karwalo .. not Jo Bhi Karwalo.... mind it
  • many countries have bases outside. us has more than 100 bases outside.
    It is Job Hi Karwalo .. not Jo Bhi Karwalo.... mind it
  • Remember Kandhar n our difficulties in CAR region
    In order to survive,we cling to all we know & understand.And we label it reality.
    But knowledge & understanding are ambiguous.That reality could be an illusion. All humans live with the wrong assumptions.
    Isn't that another way of looking at it???
