S-400 to India highlights Russia’s destabilizing role; Tell us

| Business News Today | Today Headlines


Russia’s sale of the S-400 missile defense system to India “highlights the destabilizing role” Moscow is playing in the region and potentially beyond as well, the United States said. The United States continues to be concerned about India’s purchase of Russia’s multi-billion dollar missile defense system. India has asserted that its decisions are based on its national interest to protect its national security.

Well, in many ways that doesn’t change the concerns we have with the S-400 system. I think this highlights the destabilizing role that Russia is playing not only in the region, but potentially also beyond it, State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters Thursday at his daily press briefing. . Regarding CAATSA sanctions, you have heard me say before that we have not made a decision on this transaction, but it is something that we continue to discuss with the Indian government given the risk of penalties for this particular transaction under CAATSA, he said.

Price was responding to a question about the implications of the Russian S-400 system for India on its bilateral relations with New Delhi given the unprecedented tension it has with Moscow over what he calls an impending Ukrainian invasion. Despite strong objections from the United States and the threat of sanctions from the Biden administration, India has refused to change its decision and is proceeding with the purchase of the missile defense system.

Whether it’s India or any other country, we continue to urge all countries to avoid major new deals for Russian weapons systems, Price said. The Biden administration, so far, has made no decision on CAATSA sanctions. I don’t have a timeline to offer, but these are issues we continue to discuss with our partners in India, Price said.
