Russian Federation to deliver S-400 missile defence system to Turkey in July

That would have allowed time for more training and for Turkey to rethink its plans.

The House resolution entitled "Expressing concern for the United States-Turkey alliance" underlining concerns about Ankara's foreign policy and the country's judicial system is not acceptable, Turkey's foreign ministry said in a statement.

The actions are the latest in a set of moves by the U.S.to try to remove Turkey from the F-35 program amid a standoff with its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally over the purchase of Russian S-400 missile defense system.

If Turkey were removed from the F-35 program, it would be one of the most significant ruptures in recent history in the relationship with the United States, experts said.

"[The resolution] does not fit the deep-rooted alliance and friendship between the U.S. and Turkey", the ministry spokesperson Sami Aksoy said.

While Turkey has dismissed USA warnings, saying the S-400s were a "done deal", Washington has said discussions are taking place with Ankara on potentially selling Turkey rival Raytheon Co Patriot missile defences.

The head of Russia's state-owned conglomerate Rostec said last week that Moscow would begin delivering the S-400 air defence systems to Turkey.

It urges Turkey to cancel the S-400 purchase and calls for sanctions if Ankara accepts their delivery.

"It is unacceptable to take decisions which do not serve to increase mutual trust, to continue to keep the language of threats and sanctions on the agenda and to set various artificial deadlines", it added.

The United States is also pressuring Turkey and other nations to isolate Iran, including blocking oil exports.

Turkish pilots have been banned from training on F-35s at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, the Pentagon confirmed, as Washington steps up pressure on Ankara to force it out of S-400 air defense deal with Russian Federation.

Their comments were in response to a question about the US acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan's letter to Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar that laid out the steps to remove Turkey from the F-35 training program. "Either Mr. Erdogan cancels the Russian deal, or he doesn't", Eliot Engel, chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, said on the House floor on Monday. "There's no third option".

Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar is likely to meet with Shanahan in Brussels on the sidelines of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit planned for June 26-27, a senior Turkish official said.

Regardless of the US warnings, Turkey appeared to be moving ahead with the S-400 purchase.

The anonymous sources noted that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's has already said that the purchase from Moscow was a "done deal" and "there is no backtracking from that".
