(Bloomberg) -- The U.S government has approved the sale of naval guns worth $1 billion to India in the biggest defense deal between the two countries in four years.Putting the U.S. among the top three global arms suppliers to India, the State Department notified the Congress on Nov. 19 of the possible foreign military sale of as many as 13 naval guns made by the Minneapolis-based BAE Systems Land and Armaments.Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government had made a request to buy the MK 45 naval guns and 3,500 D349 ammunition from the U.S. government, a Defense Security Cooperation Agency notice said.The MK-45 Gun System allows India’s navy to conduct antisurface warfare and anti-air defense missions, while enhancing interoperability with US and other allied forces.The proposed sale will not alter the basic military balance in the region -- instead it will support the foreign policy and national security of the U.S. by improving the security of a strategic regional partner, the notice said.‘Future Threats’The proposed sale will improve India’s capability to meet current and future threats from enemy weapon systems. India will use the enhanced capability as a deterrent to regional threats and to strengthen its homeland defense.The purchase is part of Modi’s plan to spend $250 billion by 2025 to modernize the armed forces to help meet the twin challenge from neighbors and rivals Pakistan and China. India has fought three major wars with Pakistan and one with China over territorial disputes along its western and northern borders.Since 2007, U.S. has notched up defense deals worth $17 billion with India, competing with traditional arms suppliers Russia and Israel to complete the top three slots.In the 12 years, the U.S. has sold the Boeing Co. C-17 Globemaster long-range transport aircraft, Lockheed Martin C-130 Super Hercules special cargo aircraft, M777 ultra light howitzers, Apache gunship and Chinook cargo helicopters and more to India, which is listed by SIPRI as the second largest arms importer globally in 2018.To contact the reporter on this story: N.

(Bloomberg) -- The chairman of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee warned that if Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan persists in the deployment of a Russian air defense system, he will move ahead with a sanctions bill.“It is his choice, and he knows the consequences,” Jim Risch, an Idaho Republican, said in a statement on Friday evening.Just a day earlier, Risch had said that the Senate should hold off on sanctions over Turkey’s invasion of Syria if Erdogan agreed to give up the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system.“We ought to sit tight, because I think we’re probably going to want to evaluate our position somewhat if indeed we get the S-400s resolved.”On Wednesday, Risch and other Republican senators had a tense exchange with Erdogan as he met with President Donald Trump at the White House. They discussed the missile purchase as well as Turkey’s military campaign against the Kurds in northern Syria.“We brought him to reality in no uncertain terms – from the reality of crippling sanctions on his economy, to our concerns regarding his attack on the Kurds,” Risch, a Trump ally, said in the statement, “and he left that meeting with what we hoped was a different and clear understanding that the Senate remains firm and that keeping the Russian S-400 missiles is a nonstarter.”“Now that Erdogan has gone home, according to news reports, he has stated that not only will he keep S-400s, he will make them operational in a matter of months,” Risch added.“If he is firm in his position,” he said, “I intend to move forward with a Turkey sanctions bill.”The S-400 was designed to shoot down U.S. and allied aircraft at greater ranges and altitudes than older systems. American officials are concerned that sensitive technology in the F-35 fighter plane designed to evade such a system could be compromised and used to improve the S-400 system if Turkey, a NATO member, has both.During a joint press conference with Erdogan on Wednesday, Trump said the purchase of the system presented “some very serious challenges” for the U.S.Some Republicans had expressed uneasiness over the Trump-Erdogan meeting itself, questioning whether a leader who had ordered his armed forces to attack the Kurdish allies of the U.S. in Syria should be rewarded with a White House visit.By law, the Trump administration must sanction Turkey for purchasing the Russian missile-defense system, but the Treasury Department has not yet complied. There are several additional proposals in the House and Senate for extra sanctions as punishment for the invasion of Syria that began last month.The Lockheed Martin Corp. F-35 is a next-generation stealth fighter produced for the U.S. and international allies. Turkey has been a significant contributor to the production of the warplane and was expected to purchase about 100 of the jets before it was expelled from the F-35 program this year over the S-400 episode.\--With assistance from Daniel Flatley and Steven T.
