New Sanction on China by America
By Sandeep nagyaan · 22 Sep 2018
The US has banned China's army from buying fighter aircraft and missile systems from Russia. The trump administration has taken this tough step at a time when business warfare has already begun between the US and China. This latest move by the US has provoked both China and Russia. China has demanded to ban the ban while expressing an outrage.
What is the issue between two Nations:- It is implementing the ban on China's Equipment Development Department (EDD) and its director Lee Shangfu with immediate effect. EDD is an agency of the Chinese army, which is responsible for buying arms and equipment. These restrictions have been imposed in contravention of the US law, CAATSA (Countworth America's Advocacy Through Sections Act) to enter into agreement with Russia's leading arms exporting company, Rosoboronexport.
Why America banned on China:- EDD had last year signed a deal with the Russian company to purchase ten Sukhoi-35 fighter aircraft and this year's ground-to-air S-400 missile system. Due to the ban, the name of EDD and its director has been included in the list of US Treasury Department. American citizens can not do business with people in this list
Law of CAATSA:- in the United States in the year 2017 by the CAATSA law. Under this, the US has banned Iran, North Korea and Russia. In Russia, the purchase of defense equipment has been banned. This law has also been made to punish Russia for intervening in civil war of Ukraine and Syria. 33 other people and companies associated with Russia's military and intelligence. This list is made under the CAATSA law.
