Van Hollen Statement on Inclusion of Turkey Sanctions in NDAA

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement on the inclusion of mandatory sanctions against Turkey within the NDAA in response to Turkey’s recent use of the S-400 Russian-made missile defense system, which undermines our national security and the security of our NATO allies.

“It’s about time. I’m glad to see Congress do what the Administration would not – and show President Erdogan that we will not back down when it comes to protecting our security and that of our faithful NATO allies. I was proud to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure Turkey is held accountable.”
