Washington again warned India against buying the S-400 air defense system from Russia

28

The United States has so far avoided talking about the introduction of sanctions against New Delhi. But at the same time, Washington again warned India against buying the S-400 air defense system.


US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke about this in an interview with the Times of India.

A senior American official did not claim that Washington was going to impose sanctions on India for acquiring S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia.

We will enforce our laws, but we have shared our concerns with India about this

Blinken said.

The likelihood of the introduction of American sanctions against New Delhi is high, because Russian equipment should arrive in India this year. On the other hand, Washington is in no hurry to exert tough pressure, as this South Asian country is considered one of the world's largest arms importers.



Apparently, therefore, Blinken answered questions from the press very evasively, saying that one should not make hasty conclusions. Instead, he suggests waiting and seeing how events unfold.

The Russian-Indian contract for the supply of five S-400 complexes was signed in 2018 during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to India. Since then, Washington has regularly expressed its dissatisfaction with the deal. India previously said that they did not intend to abandon the purchase, adding that the country needs the S-400, among other things, to protect it from the Chinese threat.

          And what's the big deal? ) India knew about the beginning of deliveries then immediately. They asked early last year, but they were refused. The capacities are loaded.

        But we have to wait a little ... 10-15 years until the Congress will have 284 permission sheets to read and approve.

        If they impose sanctions on India, then American hegemony will end there. It finally dawned on them that they had woken up China in vain - they should have listened to Napoleon. If the pots are broken with India, they will lose another largest sales market and cheap slave power.

    I would read it "including from the American threat." So much tension is being created in that region. And the star-striped flag plays an important role in this.

    H'm. I remember one American president, when asked by a journalist to what extent "American interests" will spread and where is the end of their "spheres of influence", replied: where there is at least one US citizen and where there is at least one US dollar, there will be "interests and spheres influence of "USA. In simple terms, do you want to protect yourself from the USA getting into your affairs? - do not let any American into your territory and avoid American dollars.

      Anyone can say so, this is not a reason to expel someone or avoid. They just climb everywhere, and there is no way to protect themselves except to be strong and strong.

    If the Indians refuse to purchase, then they thereby support the anti-Russian sanctions. Such a partner and (from the word "absolutely") is not needed. Then it is possible with a clear conscience to offer these complexes to Pakistan. Goodness should not be lost.

        only with India it is more difficult, it is multi-armed like Shiva ... the loss of one limb will, of course, complicate life, but it will not be as critical as for others who do not have so many limbs.

    Washington warned India again
    Apparently, this is not a warning, but a threat, from the position of which the Americans are accustomed to act. And in some countries it works. Unfair competition and even from a position of strength is the strong point of the United States.

    American weapons are so good that customers have to be intimidated into buying from them. That's all you need to know about democracy, the WTO, and freedom the American way!

      It is fair to say that the US has good weapons, only very expensive and a lot of things are attached to it, limiting the scope of its use, and besides, the Americans strictly monitor the implementation of the paragraphs of the contract and its conditions. For example, improper execution of the rules of maintenance and repair leads to either an increase in the cost of unscheduled repairs and maintenance or the termination of the entire contract.

        Stripes produce all kinds of weapons, for every taste and color.
        Another question, they have their own specificity, dictated by their offensive doctrine and other related matters.
        And yes, the prices for high-quality weapons are exorbitant, and not everyone can act by such methods as they do ...
        Buying elements / pieces of that whole, without the ability to acquire everything else necessary, is not an effective way of arming your army, especially if it faces several / completely different tasks.

    The Americans will not exert a strong influence on India to refuse to buy the S-400, they will chide a little bit and everything, in the context of the global confrontation between America and China, India is considered by the Americans as the main ally, and the Indians understand that there is an adequate analogue of this air defense system except Russia has no one yet, the Chinese could not copy it, I had to buy

    Americans are not politicians, but some kind of salesmen. They travel around the world, muddy the waters, impose their goods. Right, people from the Boulevard of the Capuchins, but for some reason from them a solid negative comes.
