If Ankara buys the S-400 AA systems from Russia — Washington could impose sanctions against Turkey — said the US Democratic senator Bob Menendez. “If President Erdogan insists on the purchase of the S-400 anti-missile systems, and if he completes the purchase and installation — then the sanctions will be imposed on the basis of the bill that I originally introduced. And we are not talking about the possibility of sanctions — they will be mandatory. We don’t want this to happen, so we proposed other options to Turkey. The S-400s are incompatible with the NATO architecture”- RIA NEWS quoted the senator. Recently Bob Menendez presented to Congress »the Law on the Cooperation in the Field of Security and Energy in the Eastern Mediterranean”. One of the points of the law is a ban on the transfer of F-35 aircraft to Ankara if Turkey buys the S-400s. According to the senator — Turkey needs to make the final choice. Either to remain an ally to the NATO, or to distance itself.
