US disappointed with Turkey's S-400 purchase - Pompeo

Washington is "disappointed" with Ankara's acquisition of the Russian S-400 missile system, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pictured) told Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu during a phone conversation, a spokesperson for the department said.

Additionally, Pompeo reaffirmed the US's commitment to "addressing Turkish security concerns along the Turkey-Syria border" and working together to "ensure the protection of local partners working with the United States and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS."

US President Donald Trump previously invited a number of Republican senators to discuss imposing sanctions on Turkey for the purchase defensive missile systems, for which Ankara was already suspended from the F-35 program.
