The United States condemned Turkey’s testing of S-400 anti-aircraft missile system

The USA has criticized Turkey’s testing of the Russian Sinop S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems. This was stated by Morgan Ortagus, the official representative of the State Department.

“We strongly condemn the launch of the S-400 missile as incompatible with Turkey’s obligations as a NATO ally and strategic partner of the United States”, –  said the diplomat.

She also recalled that American representatives at various levels, “up to the highest”, have repeatedly brought to Ankara’s attention the position that the purchase of S-400 is unacceptable.

“The United States clearly expressed its expectation that the S-400 should not be put into operation. We were also clear about the potential serious security implications for our relationship if Turkey activated the system”, –  said Morgan Ortagus.
