  • CAATSA stands for “Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act”
  • This punitive act was signed by President Donald Trump in August 2017.
  • It mandates US administration to impose sanctions on any country carrying out significant defence and energy trade with sanctioned entities in North Korea, Iran and Russia.
  • This is an act by the Congress, thus the President of the United States of America doesn’t have too much of authority over it.
  • Why in news? India is buying S-400 system from Russia that might invite sanctions under CAATSA
