US says ‘no decision' on Indian CAATSA waiver

by Jon Grevatt

The United States government is yet to determine whether to allow India to dodge potential penalties linked to New Delhi's procurement of Russian S-400 Triumf self-propelled surface-to-air missile systems.

A State Department spokesperson told Janes on 17 November that the US continued to urge its allies to cease procurement of military equipment from Russia or face sanctions under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which was enacted in 2017.

Citing CAASTA, the US has already sanctioned China and Turkey for their respective procurement of the S-400 system, which is produced by Almaz-Antey.
