US senators call for sanctions against Turkey

Due to the controversial purchase of the Russian missile defense systems S-400 have prompted two influential U.S. senators for the government to impose sanctions against Turkey.

The Administration of President Donald Trump would have to show the Nato-Partner Turkey, as provided by law, now, quickly, with criminal measures, requested by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and his democratic colleague, Chris Van Hollen.

In the on Monday published a letter to the Minister of foreign Affairs Mike Pompeo wrote to the senators that it is a "terrible Signal" to other countries would be to allow the breach of law of Ankara with impunity.

"Serious challenge"

The purchase of S-400 to Turkey is also expected to play at the Nato summit in London, a role that begins on Tuesday. Turkey wants to hold on to the missile defense system. During a visit of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the White house Trump spoke last month, therefore, of a "very serious challenge", but without sanctions, to announce.

The Turkey had acquired the missile defense in the summer of Russia and to the displeasure of the United States as a Nato-partners to be drawn. The US government fears that Russia might move on the sensitive Radar of the weapons system data on the capabilities of the US F-35 fighter.

Ankara was a Partner in the construction of fighter jets and wanted to buy many planes. Because of the arms deals with Moscow, the US has excluded Turkey from the F-35 program. Tough sanctions failed so far, but. (chk/sda)
