WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – 06th February, 2021) The United States is urging Turkey to dispose of the Russian S-400 air defense system, US Defense Department spokesperson John Kirby told reporters.
“We urge Turkey not to retain the S-400 system,” Kirby said during a press briefing on Friday.
In July 2019, the US government announced that it was suspending Turkey‘s participation in the F-35 program over its purchase of the S-400 system. In December 2020, the United States also imposed sanctions on the Turkish Presidency of Defense Industries under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
