INDONESIA REJECTS U.S THREATS OF SANCTIONS, WILL CONTINUE WITH RUSSIAN SU-35 FIGHTER DEAL - REFUSES TO BUY OVER-PRICED US MILITARY JUNK

 On Oct 21, 2018

The Indonesian side is not willing to give up the purchase of Su-35 fighters, the country’s defense minister, Ryamizard Ryacudu, said.

“Indonesia is expected to receive fighters in the near future,” said the major Indonesian official. In addition, the minister pointed out that Jakarta is extremely interested in this acquisition.

The politician also stressed that the country “would never refuse” the contract signed with Russia due to probable US sanctions.

According to him, the parties have already begun to implement the agreement, however, the Indonesian Ministry of Defense needs to resolve some issues related to the payments, along with the Ministries of Finance and Trade.

Recently the media reported that Indonesia had suspended the contract signed in February this year for the purchase of 11 Russian Su-35 fighters because of possible restrictive measures that Washington could introduce against the country for military cooperation with Russia.

Thus, according to the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), the American authorities may introduce sanctions against third countries for the purchase of Russian weapons.

Other countries that have been threatened with sanctions if they purchase Russian military equipment include Turkey and India.

On October 5, with the signing of the agreement on the sale of Russia’s S-400 air defense systems to India, US President Donald Trump indicated some harsh measures against New Delhi.

According to Amit Cowshish, a former financial advisor to the Indian Ministry of Defense, sanctions on India over the S-400 Russians further raise doubts about Indo-American relations.

“This puts a big question mark on the relationship between India and the US, which has been on the rise for some time. In fact, sanctions will be counterproductive and will bring India even closer to Russia than ever before, the financial adviser said.

Cowshish further adds that “Russia, France and Sweden will help India in any way they have in the past.”

“India will have to live with the sanction, and it will have to find alternatives to meet the defense requirements, which, according to [India] believed, could meet the US,” he added.
