US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price at the daily press conference Turkey received from Russia S-400 answered the question about the weather system.
Price said, “Russian S-400 missiles are not compatible with NATO, they threaten NATO’s security, they are not in line with Turkey’s own commitments as a NATO member. Turkey’s possession of this system triggered the CAATSA sanctions.” said.
“TURKEY IS A VALUABLE NATO ally”
Emphasizing that Turkey has been a valuable NATO ally for a long time, Price said, “Turkey has been a valuable NATO ally for a long time and therefore it is especially important for us that a NATO ally accepts the S-400 system.
President Biden will have the opportunity to discuss this issue at the NATO summit. We warned Turkey not to accept this system, and we continue to warn it,” he said.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, in his statement recently, said, “The differences between us and Turkey are not a secret. Turkey does not act like a NATO ally in many respects. The S-400s purchased from Russia and the steps taken in the Eastern Mediterranean are disturbing.”
