URGENT US confirms Turkey blocked from F-35 program after Russian missile purchase Washington, July 17, 2019 (AFP) - The White House confirmed Wednesday that Turkey would no longer be permitted to join in NATO's F-35 fighter program after it purchased a Russian missile defense system. "Unfortunately, Turkey's decision to purchase Russian S-400 air defense systems renders its continued involvement with the F-35 impossible," White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. She however added that the United States would "continue to cooperate with Turkey extensively, mindful of constraints due to the presence of the S-400 system in Turkey." pmh/sst
