Turkey on Wednesday urged the US to avoid prejudicial measures for bilateral relations after the US State Department spokeswoman reiterated that Ankara would face “real and negative consequences” of the acquisition of Russian defense systems S-400.

On Tuesday, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman said the words of the State Department’s Morgan Ortagus did not agree with the spirit and content of the discussions between the presidents of the two countries at the meeting G20 last month.

Spokesman Hami Aksoy said, “We invite the U.S. side to avoid taking wrong steps, excluding diplomacy and dialogue, that will harm relations,” adding Ankara had still not received a response to its proposal to set up a working group to look into the impact of the S-400 purchase.

After meeting with President Donald Trump in Osaka, President Tayyip Erdogan said the United States was not planning to impose sanctions on Ankara for buying the S-400. Trump said Turkey was not treated fairly, but did not rule out sanctions.

The United States says the S-400s are not compatible with NATO’s defense network and could jeopardize their stealth fighter aircraft Lockheed Martin F-35, an aircraft that Turkey is helping build and plans to buy.

Turkey could be expelled from the F-35 program and other US sanctions if it continues with the delivery of the S-400. Washington has already stopped training Turkish pilots in the United States on the aircraft.
