Third military pact not signed by India and US due to S-400 contract irritation in Washington

16

American-Indian talks were held in Washington, including the so-called “ministerial” component in the “two by two” format. The negotiations were attended by the ministers of foreign affairs and defense of the two countries. Indian observer Navtan Kumar notes that the negotiations were, from the point of view of the United States, "overshadowed by India’s decision to buy S-400 air defense systems from Russia."


From the material of Navtan Kumar in the Indian media:

However, the overall mood was positive, and both sides agreed on the need for further discussion of joint work against common threats.

According to the Indian media, the American and Indian representatives at the talks discussed the signing of the so-called "third military pact." This is a contract, which is indicated by the English abbreviation BECA.

This “pact” would allow India to “use the American experience and capabilities” for geospatial exploration, improving the accuracy of automation of control systems weaponsincluding drones, ballistic and cruise missiles.

Why is the treaty called the “Third Military Pact”?


The fact is that earlier India and the USA signed two other agreements in the field of military cooperation. This is the LEMOA military logistics agreement and the COMCASA communications compatibility and security agreement.

Nautan Kumar:

The American side did not hide the irritation regarding India’s contract with Russia to acquire S-400 air defense systems, which could explain the delay in signing the third military pact. As a result, the agreement was not signed because of India's insistent desire to acquire the S-400. Pentagon chief Mark Esper at the talks noted that the S-400 issue remains extremely acute for the development of US-India bilateral contacts on military-technical cooperation.

Instead of BECA, an industrial safety application was signed in Washington, in particular, on the exchange of information on threats in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

    Oh, the Americans wondered again!
    Enlighten, do not let it die dark, do Americans have any complaints about penguins in Antarctica?
    Well, there’s not a single country to which they have no complaints.
    Hindus hold on!

      Penguins do not purchase C400 systems, which means there are no complaints

      By the way, yes!
      It’s necessary to punish it well.

    Hehe, it means that Americans have already come to terms with the purchase of aircraft and tanks from India from Russia. It's good.

    It should be expected that the American media will now begin to broadcast that Russia is pumping the whole world with its weapons, inflating thus hotbeds of tension. But the whitish and fluffy American weapons, like butterflies from Chukovsky’s poems, fly over a burning planet and extinguish wars. Yeah.

    But this is true "positive" or cool, it's like looking from the outside!

    One gets the impression (or they so inspire us) that the Americans, being capricious about the purchase of weapons by other countries from Russia, are creating the image of extremely unreliable business partners ... Are they so short-sighted or so brazen from the confidence that everyone can?

    It can be seen that our people really put something in the S-400 from which the amers get worse. So they interfere with its sale. Because of one economy, they will not try so hard and miss contracts!

    The USA is infuriated with the latest air defense ... But we have not experienced them in military operations yet!
    Russian air defense is independence from the United States and security. Won Erdogan, how brave he became)))
