US Department of State warned Turkey about the negative effects of the purchase of C-400

The United States is ready to cooperate with Turkey and intends to continue discussing the acquisition of Russian S-400 systems by Ankara, which can lead to "extremely negative consequences."


This was stated by the spokesperson of the US State Department Morgan Ortegus.

“We are undoubtedly ready to cooperate with them (Turkey. - RT ) and continue to discuss our concerns about this purchase (C-400. - RT ), in the case of which there will be very real and extremely negative consequences,” TASS said.

The US Foreign Ministry stressed that the deal would have a negative impact on Turkey’s cooperation with the United States and NATO in the field of defense.

Earlier, American Air Force general Todd Walters said that Turkey is still an important ally for the United States in NATO.

Dmitry Egorchenkov, director of the Institute of Strategic Studies at RUDN, in an interview with FBA Economy Today, expressed the opinion that the purchase of Russian S-400 by Turkey damages the financial interests of the US military-industrial complex.
