India "Risks Triggering Sanctions" Over Russian S-400 Deal, US Warns

Just ahead of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's visit to India next week, the State Department reiterated US frustration with New Delhi over its deal to purchase S-400 antiaircraft missile system from Russia.

India already appeared to blow off last week's US urging it not to go through with the purchase, which comes at a delicate time of severe strain with Turkey over precisely the same issue. A State Dept. briefing hinted at the Turkey issue alongside ally India seeking to procure the advanced Russian system:

"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 sanctions," an official said during a background briefing Friday.
