The United States has cautioned its allied countries of growing up in the direction of a significant purchase agreement with Russia and has indicated that in such a case, they can take preventive action. The US warning comes just before Russian President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India, in which there is a possibility of a major agreement between the two countries for arms systems. India is considering buying its S-400 missile defense system from Russia.
The US says that the agreement to buy S-400 missile defense systems with Russia will be considered as an important trade agreement with Russia. A country’s agreement with Russia facing the US sanctions is enough to impose a punishable ban on him.
The U.S. government can ban ‘America’s opponents through the provisions of the Competition to Fight Through the Contracts’ (CaATSA) with Iran, North Korea, and Russia to make ‘significant business transactions.’
Under this Act, America prohibits the interests of the banned countries, especially Russia’s oil and gas industry, the Defense and Security Industry and financial institutions industry. The US enacted this act in the backdrop of Russia’s alleged intervention in the 2016 US Presidential election and its military intervention in Ukraine.
The US State Department spokesman said on Wednesday that we request all our partners and partners to avoid any kind of transaction with Russia so that they do not have to undergo ban under CAATSA. On the question about India’s plan to buy S-400 missile defense system from Russia, the spokesperson said that the government has indicated that in the case of Section 231 of CAATA, the new focus is seen in the new focus or efficiency. It also includes the S-400 missile system.
According to the media report, India can sign several billion-dollar deals with Russia this year to buy this missile system. Significantly, Putin is on a four-and-a-half-year trip to India. Where he will attend the annual India-Russia Summit. During this time, this agreement is expected to be signed.
