US house approves CAATSA waiver for India; To help Modi govt-Putin’s S-400 deal
Paving the way for removal of a major roadblock in India-Russia S-400 deal amid Ukraine war, the United States House of Representatives approved Indian-origin Congressman Ro Khanna’s amendment to the National Defence Authorization Act (NDAA). The amendment to the NDAA was passed by voice vote as part of an en bloc amendment during floor consideration of the NDAA. While it doesn’t equal a decision on CAATSA, it urges the administration to grant a waiver only to India. Ro Khanna said the move will further strengthen US and India's defence partnership.
