What will be the impact if the U.S. goes ahead with punitive measures? How will the Russian missile defence shield help India tackle threats from China and Pakistan?
The story so far:
What kind of sanctions?
Has the U.S. used CAATSA before for S-400 sales?
Which way is the Biden administration leaning on India?
What is India’s position?
Why is the S-400 deal so important to India?
This stated principle of Indian foreign policy wavered under pressure from the Trump administration, when India agreed to stop buying Iranian oil over the threat of sanctions in 2019, a move that caused India both financial and reputational damage. Not giving in to the U.S.’s unilateral sanctions over the S-400 would be one way to restore some of that.
