Greek, Armenian, Hindu, Kurdish, Mid-East Groups Write to Senate Leaders; Work with House to Enforce CAATSA Sanctions on Erdogan

WASHINGTON—A coalition of ethnic, faith-based, and civic groups representing Americans from across the nation are calling on Senate leaders – and working with U.S. Representatives – to enforce U.S. sanctions on Turkey and block Erdogan’s request to purchase 40 F-16 fighters and 80 F-16 modernization kits.

In a recent letter to Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Armed Services Committee Chairmen and Ranking Members Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI), Jim Risch (R-ID), and Jim Inhofe (R-OK), representatives of the Hellenic American Leadership Council, Armenian National Committee of America, American Friends of Kurdistan, Hindu American Foundation, and Middle East Forum shared their concerns about “national security risks posed to the United States by Turkey’s dramatic turn away from the Western alliance and our norms of democracy and the rule of law.”
