U.S. President and Pompeo reviewing response to purchase of Russian air defenses

Vastavam web: U.S. President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are reviewing their options for responding to Turkey’s recent purchase of the Russian S-400 air defence system, the State Department said on Tuesday.

Trump signalled reluctance to punish Turkey over its acquisition of the Russian system, saying it was “not fair” that the United States would now be prohibited from selling Ankara billions of dollars worth of F-35 stealth jet fighters.
