US Urges India Not to Buy Russian S-400 Systems Ahead of Pompeo's Visit

The US is already engaged in a row over the purchase of Russian S-400 air defence systems with a key NATO ally - Turkey.

The US has warned India against buying Russian S-400 systems, proposing the Asian nation to consider another armament of that type, a senior US Department of State official said during a conference call on Friday.

"With respect to the S-400, we're urging all of our allies and partners, India included, to forgo transactions with Russia that risk triggering the CAATSA [Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act] sanctions... This is a time we will be encouraging India to look at alternatives," the official said ahead of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s upcoming visit to India.
