                                 A BILL


 
  Regarding the sale and transfer of Moskit anti-ship missiles by the 
                          Russian Federation.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Russian Anti-Ship Missile 
Nonproliferation Act of 2000''.

SEC. 2. PURPOSE.

    The purpose of this Act is to prohibit the forgiveness or 
rescheduling of any bilateral debt owed by the Russian Federation to 
the United States until the Russian Federation has terminated all sales 
and transfers of Moskit anti-ship missiles that endanger United States 
national security.

SEC. 3. FINDINGS.

    The Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) In February 2000, the first of two Russian-built 
        Sovremenny-class destroyers sold to the People's Republic of 
        China arrived in the Taiwan Strait, manned by a mixed Russian 
        and Chinese naval crew. Currently, the Russian and Chinese 
        Governments are discussing the sale of 2 additional Sovremenny 
        destroyers.
            (2) Within weeks after the arrival of the destroyers, the 
        Russians are scheduled to transfer the first of several of the 
        ship's most lethal weapon, the radar-guided Moskit (also known 
        as Sunburn) anti-ship missile, which can carry either 
        conventional or nuclear warheads.
            (3) The supersonic Moskit missile, which can be mounted on 
        a naval or mobile land platform, was designed specifically to 
        destroy American aircraft carriers and other warships equipped 
        with advanced Aegis radar and battle management systems. The 
        United States Navy considers the missile to be extremely 
        difficult to defend against.
            (4) The Moskit missile has an over-the-horizon range of 65 
        miles and can deliver a 200-kiloton warhead in under 2 minutes. 
        One conventional Moskit missile can sink a warship or disable 
        an aircraft carrier, causing the deaths of hundreds of American 
        military personnel.
            (5) The Russian Federation is helping the air force of the 
        People's Liberation Army to assemble Sukhoi Su-27 fighter 
        aircraft, which are capable of carrying an air-launched version 
        of the Moskit missile, which has a longer range than the sea-
        launched version. The Russian Federation is reportedly 
        discussing the sale of air-launched Moskit missiles to the 
        People's Republic of China.
            (6) Land-, sea-, or air-launched Moskit missiles raise the 
        potential for American casualties and could affect the outcome 
        in any future conflict in the Taiwan Strait or South China Sea. 
        The transfer of the missile by China to Iran or other 
        belligerent nations in the Persian Gulf region would increase 
        the potential for conflict and for American casualties. A 
        Moskit missile mounted on a mobile land platform would be 
        difficult to locate and could wreak havoc on the coastline of 
        the Straits of Hormuz.

SEC. 4. PROHIBITION OF DEBT FORGIVENESS.

    (a) Prohibition.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the 
President shall not reschedule or forgive any outstanding bilateral 
debt owed to the United States by the Russian Federation, until the 
President certifies to the Congress that the Russian Federation has 
terminated all transfers of Moskit anti-ship missiles that endanger 
United States national security, particularly transfers to the People's 
Republic of China.
    (b) Waiver.--The President may waive the application of subsection 
(a) if the President determines and certifies to the Committee on 
International Relations of the House of Representatives and the 
Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate that such waiver is vital 
to the national security interest of the United States.

SEC. 5. REPORTS ON THE TRANSFER BY RUSSIA OF MOSKIT MISSILES.

    (a) In General.--Not later than 30 days after the date of the 
enactment of this Act and every 6 months thereafter, until the 
certification under section 4, the President shall submit to the 
Committee on International relations of the House of Representatives 
and the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate a report 
identifying the status of any contract and the date of the transfer of 
any version of the Moskit missile, particularly transfers to the 
People's Republic of China, occurring on or after February 1, 2000.
    (b) Submission in Classified Form.--Reports submitted under 
subsection (a), or appropriate parts thereof, may be submitted in 
classified form.
