Trump says he does not blame Turkey for buying Russian air defense system

WASHINGTON, July 26 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he does not blame Turkey for buying a Russian missile defense system, which prompted his administration to remove the NATO ally from the F-35 fighter jet program.

Trump, who was speaking to reporters at the White House, did not say when he would decide on imposing sanctions on Turkey for doing business with the Russian military, as required by a 2017 U.S. sanctions law. (Reporting by Steve Holland; Writing by Mohammad Zargham; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
