Defence Rafale - M The Ministry of Defence granted approval for the acquisition of 26 Rafale Marine fighter jets and three Scorpene diesel-electric submarines from France. This paves the way for the official announcement of these two significant deals at the Modi-Macron summit. The proposed inter-governmental agreement for the Rafale-M fighters includes the purchase of 22 single-seat jets and four twin-seat trainers, along with associated equipment, weapons, simulators, spares, crew training, and logistic support.

According to the US Constitution, the vice-president also serves as the president of the Senate. In this capacity, he or she may cast the deciding vote when there is a tie in the Senate. Note Interestingly, current US President Joe Biden, who served as a vice-president during the Barack Obama's presidency, did not cast a single tiebreaking vote.
