Turkey said on Tuesday that the US House of Representatives’ resolution, criticized for buying Russian defense systems and urging sanctions, was an unacceptable threat.

Relations between the two NATO member states have been strained on several fronts, including Ankara’s plans to buy Russian S-400 air defense systems, the detention of US consular staff in Turkey, and the conflicting strategy on Syria and Iran.

The standoff threatens US sanctions that could hurt Turkey’s already crippled economy and raise questions about country’s role in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

The resolution was approved by the House of Representatives on Monday. It was introduced in May under the title “Expressing Concern about the US-Turkey Alliance”.

The resolution urges Turkey to cancel the purchase of the S-400 and calls for sanctions if it accepts the handover, which could soon take place in July. The deal would undermine the US-led transatlantic defense alliance, the decision said.

In response, the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement that its foreign policy and judicial system were being abused by “unjust” and “unfounded” allegations in the resolution.

“It is unacceptable to take decisions that do not lead to increased mutual trust, to keep the language of threats and sanctions on the agenda and to set different artificial deadlines.”
