When being asked about the concerns and displeasure raised by the United States on India's procurement of S-400 missiles from Russia and could these mounting tensions between US-Russia could pressurize India via the CAATSA sanction, Bagchi replied, "India and the US have a comprehensive global strategic partnership. India has a special relationship with Russia. We pursue an independent foreign policy. This also implies to our defence acquisition and supplies which are guided by our National Security interests."

With this statement, India has put forward its independent foreign policy by reiterating that the procurements of S-400 missiles from Russia come under the domain of India's national security interest. Therefore, it is unlikely that India would take any decision by fearing the international sanctions and hence compromising its national security.
