The Turkish Foreign Ministry has blasted a resolution by the House of Representatives promising sanctions through the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act over Ankara's S-400 purchase, APA reports citing Sputnik International.

"The bill passed through the US House of Representatives on June 10 does not comply with the rooted amity and alliance relations of Turkey and the US. It is not possible to accept the unfair and groundless claims of the bill about Turkey's foreign policy and judicial system," the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday, Hurriyet Daily News has reported.

On Monday, the House approved a resolution calling on the Trump administration to fully apply sanctions against Turkey in the framework of the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), a law passed in 2017 enabling Washington to impose economic restrictions on any state that acquires military equipment from Russia.
