ANKARA, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The Turkish Foreign Ministry on Tuesday slammed a resolution approved by the U.S. House of Representatives that condemned Ankara's purchase of Russian S-400 defense systems.
The bill passed by the U.S. congress does not comply with the rooted amity and alliance relations of Turkey and the United States, the ministry said in a statement released on Tuesday.
It's impossible to accept such "unfair and unfounded" claims over Turkey's foreign policy and judicial system, the statement added.
The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday passed a resolution, which expressed concern over Ankara's decision to purchase Russian S-400 missile systems and called on Ankara to cancel its procurement.
Relations between the two NATO members have been strained in recent months as Ankara will start to receive the advanced Russian surface-to-air missile system in July.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has reiterated that Turkey's procurement of the Russian S-400 air defense systems is a national security deal, criticizing the United States for halting the F-35 jets deliveries.
