Granger on Turkey’s Participation in the F-35 Program

Washington, July 11, 2019 WASHINGTON – Today, Top Appropriations Committee Republican Kay Granger (R-TX) released the following statement on Turkey's receipt of the S-400 and the Administration’s response.

“Turkey’s acceptance of the Russian-made missile defense system, the S-400, is completely irresponsible. As a result, Turkey will not receive F-35s, the world’s most lethal fifth-generation aircraft,” said Granger.   

“While Turkey has been a longstanding and valued ally, their actions endanger the integrity of the United States-Turkey partnership, undermine NATO, and increase regional instability.

“There will be real consequences for Turkey’s actions.”
