Indian Press: US Secretary of Defense Calls to Stay Away from Russian Military Equipment to Avoid Sanctions

38

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, who is on a visit to India, spoke to reporters and spoke about negotiations with representatives of the Indian authorities. One of the main topics that worried the journalists was the topic related to the Russian-Indian contract for the purchase of S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems.


According to Austin, the topic itself was raised during the talks, but possible sanctions against India were not discussed, "since the Russian complexes have not yet been delivered." The head of the Pentagon said he hoped that New Delhi would still abandon military-technical imports from Russia.

The Indian newspaper Hindustan Times published a material in which it is reported about Austin's words about the contract for the acquisition of the S-400 air defense system:

The US Secretary of Defense called on India and its other partners to stay away from Russian military equipment. According to him, only there it is possible to avoid US sanctions.

At the same time, it is indicated that Lloyd Austin is trying to build an Indo-Pacific coalition of countries, which will "resist China's assertiveness."

Lloyd Austin:

Our relationship with India is critical to the entire Indo-Pacific region. The world is facing many challenges, and therefore contacts between the United States and India are the foundation of a free, open and democratic region. The Biden-Harris administration is betting on cooperation with India in many areas, from the defense industry to space and cybersecurity.

Earlier, India stated that the United States should not impose sanctions in the event of deliveries of S-400 air defense systems to the country, since they are acquired "to protect against China, which the American authorities themselves call a threat." But this reasoning, apparently, had no influence on the US authorities.

    The struggle for India will be serious now. The US needs an ally against Russia and China. But the Americans can only be prevented by their rudeness.

      Ho-ho don't you ho-ho? Fucked up to the edge
      They haven't saddled the horse (India) yet, but are already in command. I hope the Indians dance in the right direction

        Hindus danced to the Anglo-Saxon tune for several centuries. They are no strangers. India cannot live without multi-vector. The examples of the multi-vector countries of the Indians ruined by the USA are not impressive. Military equipment of India is a composite hodgepodge of weapons of a dozen countries. How is this technique to be serviced? But China has chosen a different path: it is equipping its army with its own equipment, developed on the basis of the Russian weapons school. And China bought the S-400 and the S-500 will buy it, and it sells weapons to Pakistan. But India does not give up in its desire to outsmart Russia, buy weapons for three kopecks and receive production technology as a gift.
        Miser pays twice.

          I think the memory is fresh and the irritation remains.

          Corruption arose before Russia existed.
          But India does not give up in its desire to outsmart Russia

          The Indians are not going anywhere. Will be ours to buy. hi

        If something can interfere with American rudeness, then this is an adequate answer, without fear of infringement of personal gain. This is what prevents the Russian authorities, which are under the patronage of the oligarchic stratum, from giving decent answers. An example is Cuba, the DPRK, and even Venezuela ... They were sent where they should, and all the problems with the "new sanctions" disappeared by themselves. And the Russian Foreign Ministry only expresses concern, but it is necessary to express bewilderment. Bewilderment by the policy of idiots who do not so much climb themselves "with bare heels on the saber" as push others. Does anyone else doubt that gunpowder is dry enough in Russian arsenals?

        Or the sanity of the Indians.

        The Hindus' sanity rests on the economic structure of Russia, where they do not see the rate of production. And it is not profitable for them to buy what is produced "in an hour by a teaspoon". For this reason, many contracts fall apart. The buyer needs "yesterday", the deadline is "today", but we have the engine of the first stage, then until 2027 ...
        Quote: Nyrobsky
        Delhi must understand that friendship with mattresses leads to limitation, or loss of sovereignty.

        Delhi understands that there are no direct borders between them and Moscow, and there are many "ravines" at a distance of 4 km. Remember how the "great, mighty Soviet Union" was in demand in the world. Russia, although the successor to the USSR, does not have such capabilities. And, as reality shows, she bows her head (the anti-doping scandal with the prohibition of Russian paraphernalia) to anyone. And in the world a strong shoulder, a strong hand and a cold mind are in demand.
        The situation in Russia will change so that it will become too tough for the United States, and people (states) will line up for the right to buy Russian equipment.

          So you would write everything correctly, but, Yuri Vasilyevich, did I mention Russia somewhere in my commentary? Not. As well as the fact that I did not mention that Delli should cooperate exclusively with Russia in terms of acquiring weapons. I wrote only about the fact that India, as a sovereign state, has the right to independently decide what and from whom to buy it, even from Russia, even from China, even from Turkey and from anyone in general. In this case, the United States is trying to impose its will and limit the sovereign right of India, and this is already a dictatorship. Bend in small, bend in everything else. hi

            And I saw it and noted it. Just blaming Delhi is as reckless as you'd expect from them "Verbal sending on an erotic journey" by various American blackmailers, before they are sent from Russia.

      Everything is beautiful here ... the United States can supply India, in principle, the entire range of weapons ... but:
      1. All for real money, without any subsidies ...
      2. India needs a lot of technology, it's not even Turkey.
      3. Americans do not transfer licenses
      4. Americans always get into politics
      5. The use of complex American systems is tied to the American infrastructure ... satellites, etc.
      6. The use of such systems is also controlled by the United States.
      7. The conduct of sanctions has become too broad .. and there are no guarantees and nothing to be sanctioned from. And there is a risk of being left "at a broken trough", having invested a lot of money in the acquisition of equipment and technologies from the United States.

        Do you know what and how much India has already bought from the USA? Offhand, I remember - Poseidon, Globemaster, Apache, a towed howitzer, Excalibur, from the shooter - sniper rifles, assault rifles ... And there are no complaints from them about this technique anywhere, unlike ours ...

          They (the Indians) bought something that was not or was not in the Russian Federation and Europe.
          1. Poseidon has no analogue (in the Russian Federation there is not even a carrier). Closest analogue in Japan
          2. Apache. At that time, the Ka 52 and Mi28 were "raw" and even now there is no 3rd generation ATGM on helicopters.
          3. Globe master - only the 5th Il476 was released in the Russian Federation ... we cannot even sell them.
          4. Sniper rifles (what is now serial from the Russian Federation for sale? Except for SVD

    Simple triviality !. Struggle for the sales market !. What does it have to do with an alliance against someone !. India is now the largest buyer of weapons, a banal fight for the market with threats !. It's like putting a knife at your throat and demanding to buy from you !. Ukraine was also lowered due to competition !. 30% of the Soviet military-industrial complex was in Ukraine, the Maidan was a direct blow to our gut, an attempt to knock out, our military-industrial complex, engines for helicopters, engines for ships, electronics, air-to-air missiles, transport aircraft, even the R-36 missile was under threat, since was serviced by yuzhmash !. If you look against what the sanctions were imposed, then everything is against the military industrial complex! Manufacturing, institutes, science !. And how do they cut our ms-21 ?. They understand that this is a competitor to Boeing !.

    India is a dark horse, it will try to benefit from the confrontation between the United States, China and Russia. But India will definitely not lie under the United States, independence was given dear to them and she values ​​it. India will take advantage of economic preferences, but will not believe that the decrepit lion, the United States, will protect it from China. The states cannot protect themselves from China, time is working for China, every year it is hammered into the coffin of the US empire. India will maneuver, maneuver and try to catch the sheep so that the sheep are safe and the wolves are fed.
