Congressman Joe Wilson Introduces House Resolution Regarding Turkey's Purchase of Russia’s S-400

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement after introducing H. Res. 951, regarding Turkey’s anticipated purchase of Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries:

Turkey is a valued NATO ally, but its plan to purchase Russian missile batteries is a concern. I hope Turkey will realign its defense procurement to comply with NATO standards."

The S-400 is a Russian-based mobile surface-to-air missile system that can target aircraft and incoming missiles. The S-400 cannot be integrated with other NATO members’ systems, and this lack of integration could create aerial vulnerabilities in NATO’s defenses.
