Robert O’Brien, the US national security adviser, said on Sunday that the United States is very frustrated by Turkey for the purchase of a Russian missile defense system, which may impose sanctions on Ankara if it does not get rid of it.

O’Brien said: “Turkey will feel the impact of these sanctions,” referring to the measures imposed under the Act against the enemies of America through the Penal Code, which he said Congress would pass by an overwhelming majority with the consent of members of both parties.

“Turkey will feel the impact of these sanctions” – Robert O’Brien

O’Brien made the remarks ahead of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Washington on Nov. 13 to meet with his US counterpart Donald Trump for talks that will likely be decisive in light of the growing differences between the two NATO members on many issues.

A key issue concerns Ankara’s purchase of Russia’s S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which Washington says is incompatible with NATO defenses and threatens its Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets.

Despite threats of US sanctions, Turkey began receiving payments of S400 missiles in July.

In response, Washington has removed Turkey from the F-35 fighter program, which Ankara is involved in and wants to buy, but has so far not imposed any sanctions on Ankara.

Turkey has not operated the S400 missile batteries it has received so far and Washington still hopes to persuade its ally to “stay away” from Russian systems.

“There is no place in the NATO for S-400 systems” – O’Brien

O’Brien said: “There is no place in the NATO for the S-400 systems, there is no place in the Atlantic for important Russian military purchases, this is a message that the president will convey to Erdogan very clearly when he is here”.
