The United States announced the need to maintain sanctions against Turkey while it has the S-400

US President Joe Biden nominated Karen Donfried for the post of Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the end of April.

The United States should maintain unilateral sanctions against Turkey until Ankara gets rid of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems purchased from Russia. This opinion was expressed on Tuesday by Karen Donfried, who was nominated for the post of Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.

“Chairman Menendez, I would say that we should maintain sanctions against Turkey for as long as it has S-400 [complexes],” the American diplomat said, speaking at a hearing dedicated to the consideration of her candidacy in the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee of the US Congress. She was answering questions from the head of the committee, Robert Menendez (Democrat, from New Jersey), concerning Turkey and the S-400.

US President Joe Biden nominated Donfried at the end of April. In her new position, she must be approved by the Senate.
