In India: US expresses anger over India’s multi-billion dollar military-technical contracts

38

The Indian press notes that the upcoming US-Indian talks on military-technical cooperation (MTC) may be difficult for the Indian authorities. The reason, as The Economic Times writes, is the large contracts of India with the Russian Federation. This is not only a contract for the acquisition of C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from the Russian Federation, but also a deal for the supply of 4 frigates and the rental of a submarine with the possibility of “redemption”.


The material of the mentioned publication says that earlier the Indian authorities announced a limited budget to conclude major transactions in the military-technical sphere with foreign countries.

From an article in ET:

There is some surprise, because the messages coming from the authorities said that the budget was overloaded, but on the other hand, we see that the money is being sent to Russia.

An example of contracts, the total amount of which is about 5,4 billion dollars, is given.

Recall that Moscow and New Delhi previously agreed to implement such contracts with payment in national currencies. Thus, India is actually getting out of the press of American sanctions from the well-known CAATSA package. This fact causes US anger.

ET notes that the United States will throw out its anger at a meeting with Indian colleagues.

The message is simple: the United States wants to get guarantees from India to conclude multi-billion dollar contracts with American companies. And India so far responds with the fact that in the near future "the load on the military budget is already large."

      Not so long ago, British bloodsuckers left India.
      I do not think that the local population is waiting for their replacement.

      No, India continues to pursue a policy of non-alignment, but at 16 they signed a base sharing agreement with the United States. The agreement does not allow the parties to establish bases on each other's territory, but allows the use of existing bases and equipment only for “conducting joint operations when we make such a decision.” Yes, the Americans don't really need it, they have Diego Garcia in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

          For lucrative contracts, India finds money. Moreover, the difficulties with money for military procurement are its constant mantra. wink

            They (Hindus) - still have to decide what is necessary for their Army and Navy ... otherwise they gathered from all over the world both equipment and riflemen ... poor Indian rear officers. belay
            And they will find money ... they have a population of much more than a billion.
            I am glad that China is excluded from potential arms exporters due to existing conflicts and contradictions ... otherwise it would be very difficult to negotiate with the Hindus.

              Mainly against China, India is also arming itself. One thing is not clear why there is such constant hostility between the two countries. Even the BRICS did not try on them.

        Actually, no one doubted that cooperation between Russia and India in the field of military-technical cooperation caused discontent overseas “partners”. India is one of the most promising markets for the supply of weapons ... and without exception, everyone will pull the blanket over themselves! Considering how difficult the “buyer” is, India, this is just a plus for them (Hindus).
        For markets - Need to fight! Turn on all possible mechanisms for this and agree, including at the highest political level! I hope we do not miss India. hi

      Not only did 5,4 lard greens swim past the toothy mouths of Amish producers and transnational corporations, but also 4,0% of the deal in dollars - kote down the drain!
      And this is not much, not a little - $ 216 million - cash and fool! So why not support the Taliban or the contras in Bolivia, Nicaragua ... Again, why not bless us? or so-called Russian "non-systemic opposition"?

      This is not a business, but a robbery. In fact, the US wants to get guarantees that India is obliged to pay them through the purchase of their expensive junk. They twist their hands and force everyone to buy what they say. Something like a tribute. And if India does not pay them, do you see in a fury. And so they behave with many countries as with cash cows. They believe that everyone owes them and brazenly demand "their own", otherwise sanctions, revolutions, threats. Racket is ordinary. They behave in the same way with their NATO "allies." When the US repeats the fate of the USSR, many in this world will breathe a sigh of relief. In the meantime, it is necessary to respond to force with force. This is the only language they understand.

    Americans are such radishes, they are threatened by the whole world, etc., etc. And what would happen if they were really alone in the world (all countries were fused geothetically into space). Amy would probably start to sing about the fact that some kind of staff interferes with their life and further according to the scheme?

    Indian military-technical cooperation with Russia is already on the genetic level. Sometimes slippage is noticed on some issues, but the volume speaks for itself. India is a big country with huge resources. The Americans see this and know that India does not pay with palm oil. They are shocked that besides India, even its geopolitical and military rival Pakistan shows interest in Russian technology. We will wait from the Senate to raise the issue of the genocide of Indian elephants.
