US presses Turkey to drop plans to buy Russian S-400
The United States continues its efforts aimed at discouraging Turkey from purchasing Russian-made S-400 air defense systems, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in congressional testimony on Wednesday, Sputnik reported.
"We continue to work to keep the Turks in a place where they don’t actually acquire the S-400. I believe that they have not yet and we are hopeful they will never take possession," Pompeo said during testimony before the US House Foreign Affairs Committee.
When asked whether the State Department had made a decision about Turkey’s purchase of F-35s, he answered, "I have not."
