India's response to America on the purchase of S-400 missile from Russia

India's response to America on the purchase of S-400 missile from Russia: what we don't want to buy, no country tells

 

 


India's Foreign Minister S Jaishankar on Monday responded sharply to the US on a military agreement with Russia.  Foreign Minister S Jaishankar, who visited the US, on Monday defended India's right to purchase a missile defense system from Russia, despite the threat of United States sanctions.  He said that India is free to buy the S-400 missile defense system from Russia.  He clearly said that we do not want any country to tell us what to buy from Russia and what not.


Speaking to reporters before meeting US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, External Affairs Minister Jaishankar said that India was discussing the concerns of the United States, but he did not foresee any final decision regarding the purchase of the S-400 from Russia.  Refused.  Foreign Minister Jaishankar also said that India is free to buy the missile defense system S-400 from Russia.


He said that we do not want any country to tell us what to buy from Russia and what not.  We have always said that what military equipment we buy is our sovereign right.  We do not want any country to tell us what to buy from Russia and what not.  Similarly, we do not want anyone to tell us what to buy from America and what not.

Jaishankar further said that the right to this selection is ours and I think it is in everyone's interest to understand this. Due to allegations of Russia's military involvement in Ukraine and Syria and interference in US elections, the US has approved the 2017 law.  Under it, there is a provision to ban countries that buy large arms from Russia.

Earlier also, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar had given a sharp reply and said on the S-400 agreement that India will do what is in its national interest.  He said that he would place national interests paramount in relations with other countries, including Russia, affected by the sanctions.  India is buying the S-400 missile defense system from Russia.

In response to a question on the issue of sanctions under the Countering America's Advertising Through Sanctions Act (Katsa), Jaishankar said that India has relations with many countries.  Jaishankar said, "We have relations with many countries ... which have a history."  We will do what is in our national interest and part of that strategic partnership is to respect the potential of each country and the national interest of the other.

Significantly, last year India has signed an agreement with Russia to buy a $ 5.2 billion S-400 missile defense system.  To which Russia also said that delivery is on track.
In fact, Russia is struggling to sell its weapons, which was $ 19 billion last year, due to the US threatening to buy Russian weapons on many countries.  India had signed the S-400 missile defense system purchase agreement with Russia despite being threatened by the US.  Diplomatic sources said that India fulfills the conditions exempted from the US embargo to buy the S-400 missile defense system from Russia.  On this issue, the Trump administration has ample opportunity to waive our interest.


Know what is the S-400 missile system that is under the watch of the world


 

 


Russian President Vladimir Putin is coming to Delhi on October 4 for a two-day visit to attend the India-Russia summit.  During this, he will hold talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on many important issues.  Also, during this visit of Putin, the final seal on the S-400 (S-400) missile deal with Russia can be confirmed.

A five billion dollar deal will be signed this week on Putin's visit to India.  According to Putin's top foreign policy advisor Yuri Ushakov, the president is leaving for India on October 4.  The main feature of the trip will be the signing of the agreement for the supply of S-400 air defense systems.  This agreement will be more than five billion dollars.

Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is currently on a visit to Kazakhstan.  Given the deal of the S-400 missile system, he is expected to return home by Wednesday night.

How dangerous is the S-400 missile system

 


- The full name of this missile system is S-400 Triumph which is called as SA-21 Growler in NATO countries.  It is a long-range ground-to-air missile system that Russia has built.
The S-400 was first used in 2007, which is an updated version of the S-300.

- Since the year 2015, there is talk about the deal of this missile system in India-Russia.  Many countries want to buy this system from Russia because it is considered better than the Thad (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) system of America.

This tactical capability is considered to be very strong due to the multiple systems being combined in this single missile system.  The S-400 is in great demand in the world due to multiple radars working separately, anti-aircraft missile systems, launchers, command and control centers identifying the targets themselves.

Its firepower is unmatchable as it can fire missiles in three directions simultaneously.
It can attack multiple fighter aircraft, ballistic and cruise missiles and drones simultaneously in the range of 400 km.

According to a report by the Indian Express, the S-400 Triumph missile can detect 100 air threats simultaneously and can fire 6 fighter aircraft like the US-made F-35.
India third country to get S-400

India will be the third country in the world to have this missile system after the S-400 deal with Russia.  Russia has already done this deal with China and Turkey.
With Saudi Arabia, there is talk about the purchase of this missile system.
Pakistan is very worried about this deal.  Recently, the information minister Fawad Chaudhary described this deal with Russia as a big problem.  Chaudhary said, 'India is using its powers against Pakistan.  Russia has good relations with India but Pakistan is also getting closer to Russia.  Therefore, Russia should not bet this deal only with India.
