Hutchison also warned Turkey, a NATO member, against entering a proposed arms deal with Russia that has been straining relations within the alliance. Turkey finalized plans to buy the Russian systems, called the S-400, last year, with first delivery scheduled for October 2019.

“We are very concerned about any kind of Russian missile defense in one of our alliance countries,” Hutchison said. “The whole alliance is concerned about this and we hope that Turkey will make the right decision and look for another system.”
