“We continue to urge all countries to stay clear of significant new transactions for Russian weapon systems,” the United States authorities claimed.

Russia’s marketing S-400 rocket protection system to India “radiates a limelight on the destabilizing function” that Moscow is playing in the region and potentially beyond as well, the USA has actually claimed.

The United States continues to have its concerns over India purchasing the multi-billion projectile protection system from Russia. India has asserted that its choices are based on its national interest to shield its national security.

“Well in lots of methods, this doesn’t transform the concerns that we have with the S-400 system. I assume it shines the limelight on the destabilizing function that Russia is playing not only in the area but possibly beyond also,” State Division Representative Ned Rate informed reporters on Thursday at his daily press conference.

“When it involves CAATSA assents, you’ve heard me say before, we have not made a decision when it comes to this deal, yet it’s something we continue to review with the government of India provided the risk of permissions for this particular transaction under CAATSA,” he said.

The rate was replying to a question on implications of the Russian S-400 system to India on its reciprocal ties with New Delhi given the unmatched stress it is having with Moscow on what it calls an impending Ukrainian intrusion.

Regardless of solid arguments from the United States and also hazard of assents from the Biden Management, India has declined to make any kind of adjustments in its choice and also is going on with the acquisition of the missile defense system.

“Whether it is India, whether it is any kind of various other nation, we continue to advise all countries to avoid major brand-new transactions for Russian tool systems,” Price stated.

The Biden Management, up until now, has actually not taken any decision on CAATSA permissions. “I do not have a timeline to supply, but these are problems that we continue to discuss with our partners in India,” Price stated.
