NATO Warns Turkey of Consequences for Russia's S-400 Purchase

RiaTaza

NATO’s Military Committee Chairman General Petr Pavel has warned Turkey of consequences if the country procured Russia's S-400 air defence system, SOLInternational reports.

According to the official, it will prevent Turkey from becoming part of any integrated air defence system with NATO allies.

"The principal of sovereignty obviously exists in acquisition of defence equipment, but the same way that nations are sovereign in making their decision, they are also sovereign in facing the consequences of that decision," Pavel said Wednesday, as quoted by Defense News magazine.

In addition, the official noted that the deployment of S-400 systems to Turkey without integrating them into NATO missile defence systems will also create "challenges for allied assets potentially deployed onto the territory of that country."
