Ankara: U.S. sanctions not to affect Turkey's use of S-400s

U.S. legislation to impose sanctions against Turkey will not impact Ankara’s use of the Russian S-400 missile defense system even if it passes Congress, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said.

A U.S. Senate committee backed legislation on December 11 to sanction Turkey after its offensive in northern Syria and its purchase of S-400s, the latest move by lawmakers to push U.S. President Donald Trump to take a harder line against Ankara, Reuters recalls.
