Washington has previously warned that procuring the S-400 systems from Russia could jeopardize defense industry deals between the NATO allies, and this week decided to end preferential trade with Turkey.In an interview with broadcaster Kanal 24, Erdogan also said that the United States should not try to discipline Turkey though trade measures, adding that Turkey had its own measures prepared.
