The move comes after Washington informed Turkish officials that “obtaining Russian military systems such as the S-400 is unacceptable and should not be used, according to a spokeswoman for the US State Department,” Morgan Ortagus.
Ortagus added, “The missile launch is inconsistent with Turkey’s responsibilities as a NATO ally, and we have made clear the potentially dire consequences of our security relationship if Turkey activates the system.”

The US administration had stopped Turkey’s participation in the F-35 program, warning that sanctions could be imposed on it under a program known as the Anti-America’s Adversaries Act.
