    U.S. Condemns Turkish Missile System Test, Warns of ‘Serious Consequences’

    The Pentagon on Friday strongly condemned the test of a Russian-made S-400 missile defense system by NATO ally Turkey and warned of “serious consequences.”

    “The U.S. Department of Defense condemns in the strongest possible terms Turkey’s October 16 test of the S-400 air defense system,” Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement.

    “We object to Turkey’s testing of this system, which risks serious consequences for our security relationship,” Hoffman said. “We have been clear and unwavering in our position: an operational S-400 system is not consistent with Turkey’s commitments as a U.S. and NATO Ally.”
