USA warns India over defence ties with Russia

The United States has sent out a clear warning to India over its defence deals with Russia. A top Pentagon official has warned that there is no guarantee of the US granting a waiver from sanctions if India purchases new major weapons from Russia.
The warning comes a week before the historic '2+2' dialogue between US and India.
The Pentagon's assistant director of defence for Asia and Pacific security affairs Randall Schriver said the prospect of India buying the S400 missile defence system from Russia is particularly "troubling" for several reasons.
India is set to buy five S-400 missile defence systems from Russia as part of a Rs 39,000 crore deal.
