The US says it is removing Turkey from its F-35 fighter jets programme, after Ankara received the first parts of a Russian missile defence system.

The US says the "F-35 cannot coexist with a Russian intelligence collection platform that will be used to learn about its advanced capabilities".

Russia began delivering its advanced S-400 system to Turkey last week.

As Turkey receives 1st shipment of Russian S400 surface-to-air missile system, despite Trump admin objections, Sen @RonJohnsonWI tells us on AF1:

“There’ll be sanctions. We’ll yank out F35 production. I mean it’s not going to be good for turkey....This is really unfortunate.”
