Earlier today Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland stated in testimony to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that President Biden and his administration were committed to maintaining sanctions on Turkey for its purchase of Russian S-400 missile systems.

  • Nuland also confirms that if Turkey keeps the Russian missile systems - seen as an existential threat to NATO military security - it will not be permitted to rejoin the F-35 fighter jet programme.
  • When asked about potential Turkish drone base in occupied northern Cyprus, Nuland says that she is 'unaware' of such plans, but that they would be 'destabilising'.
  • Says that the US is working with UN envoy on the 'synchronised withdrawal' of Turkish and Russian mercenaries from Libya ahead of the planned elections due in December.
