US worried about military cooperation between Russia and India

The cooperation between Russia and India in the military-technical sphere, especially with regard to the supply of air defense systems, is of concern to the United States. A statement was made by the Acting Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Alice Wells.


Speaking at a teleconference, Wells, answering a question about possible sanctions against India for India’s acquisition of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft systems, said that this issue has not been removed from the agenda, and the fact of military-technical cooperation between Moscow and New Delhi "raises serious concern. " According to her, the US Congress is considering introducing restrictions in the framework of the current US law "On Countering America's Adversaries through Sanctions" (CAATSA).

Wells warned that India would "have to make a choice" between American and Russian military equipment, noting that the United States produces "the best military technology in the world."

(...) the question arises as to which systems the Indian side will want to use in the future and how they will interact with these systems. It will not be possible to combine and combine, at some point India will have to make a strategic choice of technologies and platforms, and we offer the best technologies and platforms

- she said.

Recall that in 2018 Russia and India signed a contract for the supply of S-400 Triumph air defense systems. Deliveries of five regiment sets of S-400 air defense systems should be completed in 2025.

    Why ... the fact that a lot of money can fall outside the "American" pocket, this fact is already an insult ...

      And the funniest thing to get.
      The Americans have no leverage over India. But at the same time, India itself is extremely important for the Americans as an ally in the fight against China.

        And as the main buyer of weapons from Russia ... which also needs to be "punished", "two birds with one stone fall in one shot"

          One "hare" is to quarrel with India, as they quarreled with Turkey.
          And second?

    This is not talking about the "molecules of freedom"! Weapons, a very serious topic, money, the choice of priorities, t.p.

    And life has shown that since the beginning of the 21st century, more and more countries prefer not the “Ratriots”, but the S-400 - despite the sanctions and political pressure.

    The application for hegemony all over the world in all matters on the part of the strip-eared is the louder the less real possibilities to influence the situation. China has S-400! This is an ARGUMENT. What about the states? Besides threats, blackmail and bribery?

    Yeah. Like Turkey was offered technology on fe-35. And then, for the tied rope from the stomach and pulled out.
