    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Indian Defense Acquisitions Council (DAC) has approved the “minor deviations” in the deal on deliveries of Russian S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems to New Delhi despite the US sanctions, the Times of India newspaper reported on Sunday, citing top sources.

    “The S-400 procurement case will now go to the finance ministry for clearance and the PM-led Cabinet Committee on Security for the final nod. The country’s top political leadership will have to take a call on when the actual contract can be inked,” a source told the newspaper.

    On June 5, Indian Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that New Delhi and Moscow have reached a final stage in negotiations on the supplies of S-400.

    The progress on the issue prompts resentment from Washington. Media reports appear stating that the US may try to discourage India from reaching a deal for the delivery of S-400 air defense missiles from Russia.

    Meanwhile, William Thornberry, the Chairman of the US House Armed Services Committee, said in an interview with NDTV that India’s decision to purchase the missile system from Russia could cost it access to sophisticated US military equipment, including Predator drones for surveillance and reconnaissance missions, which could be used in operations against terrorists in Pakistan.

    The United States may try to discourage India from inking a deal for the delivery of S-400 air defense missile from Russia, the Economic Times, an English-language Indian newspaper wrote.



    In May, India and Russia started the work on creating a loophole, which will get around the US anti-Moscow sanctions, imposed a month earlier, according to the newspaper. Washington introduced restrictive measures under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) over Russia’s alleged global destabilization efforts.

    The sanctions list includes senior government officials and lawmakers, as well as state-owned and private companies, including Russian military equipment exporter Rosoboronexport. Any third party that carries out major transactions with the sanctioned companies is liable for punitive measures under CAATSA.

    Lol, if that was really the case, US would've opposed to Chabahar way back and any other Indian involvement in Iran.

    While your broken arse is stuck up with China on the mercy of their loans, we will buy weapons from whoever we want to

    S-400 is what we need and it is as per our requirements. I really am surprised to see some people assume that we are actually like them.

    This is not something purchased with USAID. It is cold hard cash.

    If they couldn't pressurise us in 1999, what makes them think they'll do it now?

    Let's see what the 'Muricans are made out of.

    Always acting tough and handing out lectures.

    Either way this is good news. We need more friction.
