US URGES URGED INDIA TO RECONSIDER PLANNED ACQUISITION OF RUSSIAN FIGHTER AIRCRAFT AS AT RISK OF POTENTIAL SANCTIONS

It is said that an official from the US State Department did not make specific reference to the Indian Air Force (IAF) procurement but said that India has not been safeguarded from possible penalties under the law.
