America told India- if we buy weapons from Russia then we are not guaranteed exemption from our restrictions.
new Delhi. The United States has again threatened India for buying a new weapon system from Russia. The United States says that if India buys arms from Russia then our restrictions can not be guaranteed to get a discount. Indeed, India is buying other weapons, including its long-range range of S-400 missile systems, from Russia to its old ally Russia.
The current US rule states that if a country makes a deal in the field of defense or intelligence from Russia, then it will face American sanctions. However, the US Parliament has given President Donald Trump and External Affairs Minister Mike Pompeio the exclusive right that if they wish, they can be exempt from allies who are dealing with Russia.
In the Pentagon, Assistant Secretary of Asia and Pacific Security Affairs Randal Screwyer said that an environment is being created that India will keep a defense agreement from anyone, it will continue to get exemptions from sanctions from the United States. These things are misleading. While sitting here, we can not tell you that India will get relaxation and it will be relaxed in sanctions.
Agreement two years ago: The agreement between India and Russia was signed in 2016 for the Interceptor based S-400 Triumph missile system. China has already done its deal with Russia in 2014 and it has already got it. It is a developed version of the S-300.
This system will save from ballistic missiles: S-400 missile can destroy fighter ships, missiles and drones of enemy countries by blinking in the blink of an eye. It will give Shield to India from Pakistan or China’s nuclear powered ballistic missiles. Russia has deployed this system to Syria. S-400 missiles and fighter planes can be destroyed within 400 km. This defense deal is very important to increase military strength on the 4,000-km-long border from China. This defense system will also act as a missile shield in a way.
