Turkey must get rid of S-400 - O'Brien

Turkey needs to get rid of the S-400 as it is unacceptable for the Russian system to operate within the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), United States National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien told CBS on Sunday.

He stated: "There’s no place in NATO for the S-400. There’s no place in NATO for significant Russian military purchases."

The national security advisor also stressed that President Donald Trump plans to pressure his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan during their meeting next week. O'Brien also added that the US Congress is prepared to pass sanctions legislation "with an overwhelming majority" unless Turkey gives up on the S-400.
