Turkey says it’s unafraid of US sanctions over Russian missile defence system deal

Turkey today said it does not fear US sanctions over its decision to buy a Russian missile defence system that has frayed ties between the NATO allies.

The United States has given Turkey a deadline of July 31 to drop the purchase of the S-400 system, or face sanctions and removal from its F-35 fighter jet programme. Turkey Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters in Ankara that regardless of whatever sanctions there may be, they have bought the S-400. 


He said Turkey is working on the date for the system's delivery, which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said would be in the first half of July.


Cavusoglu said Turkey will no longer allow other countries to dictate its defence purchases. Relations between Washington and Ankara have deteriorated over multiple issues, including the S-400 deal and US support for a Syrian Kurdish militia viewed as terrorists by Turkey.



Sanctions could cause damage at a time when Turkey's economy is already struggling. Its currency lost a third of its value last year, in part due to temporary US sanctions over the detention of an American pastor.
