Senior officials of the US and US foreign affairs and defense committees warned Turkey on Tuesday that it risks imposing severe sanctions if it moves ahead with its plans to buy the Russian S-400 missile defense system and threatens further legislative action.

“By the end of the year Turkey will have either advanced F-35s or Russian S-400 missile defense systems on its territory,” said Jim Reese, Jim Enhoff and Democratic Rep. Bob Menendez and Jack Reid. “Ankara may face sanctions under US law if it goes ahead with the purchase of missiles”.

“Sanctions will seriously harm Turkey’s economy, destabilize world markets, alienate foreign direct investment and block Turkey’s aviation and defense industry,” He said.

The two officials have powers such as “stopping” large arms sales abroad and playing significant roles in drafting legislation that could punish Turkey if it goes ahead with the S-400 package.

There is a dispute between the United States and Turkey, two NATO members, over Ankara’s decision to buy the Russian S-400 missile defense system, which runs counter to NATO’s, He said.
