Default Research in India

Could anyone pls tell me if working as the research officer, in a joint venture of the Johns Hopkins University and a govt medical college in india, for about a year, would be regarded as significant research experience while applying to the residency programs?
There would be no mention of the person in the publications, but it can be added to the CV as research experience with an LOR to back it up ( maybe ).
Would this be counted as research experience?
Would it increase chances of landing a good residency?

oh u're welcome devidsmith! all i did was ask the question!
Now it would be great if someone answered it! This is the longest I've ever had to wait to get a reply on usmle-forums! whats up with that guys??

By the way, I read somewhere on the internet that only if the research is in the form of peer reviewed publication, that too in an american institute ( or atleast an institute which the residency progs in question consider significant ), will the research actually amount to something in the residency application.

Also i think the LORs will have more weight if they are CLINICAL. Only a few institutes ( that i know of ) give you the option of submitting a research LOR.
And again if this is not from an recognised ( read AMERICAN) institute, it means you have just wasted one LOR.
