Turkey Not to Accept Language of Sanctions on Russian S-400 Supplies Deal : FM Cavusoglu

Russian S-400 Supplies
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Friday that if Turkey gets a fair proposal from NATO allies on US-made Patriot or other air defense systems, Ankara will consider it.

Turkey does not accept the language of sanctions in discussions of  deliveries of Russian S-400 air defense systems with its NATO partners, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

"We discussed the subject of the S-400 with Pompeo. We told him we needed these systems." The process for the S-400 was completed before the sanctions. Statements like 'if you buy the S-400, we will apply sanctions' will not work with us," Cavusoglu said.

The statement comes after Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell said last week that Turkey could face US sanctions if it goes ahead with plans to purchase S-400 missile defense systems from Russia.
