Turkey said a decision by the united States to remove the country from the F-35 fighter jet program, "will irreparably damage relations", according to a statement by its Foreign Ministry on Wednesday.
The unilateral move by the US "neither complies with the spirit of alliance nor is it based on legitimate grounds," the ministry was quoted as saying by Anadolu agency.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Tuesday there is no need to take very seriously decisions made by the European Union to curb contacts and funding for Ankara over its drilling for gas and oil off Cyprus.
He made the comment at a news conference, broadcast by CNN Turk, in the North Macedonian capital Skopje.
Turkey will "take reciprocal steps" if the United States imposes sanctions over the purchase of Russian S-400 defense systems, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday.
The Turkish lira weakened briefly to 5.9075 against US dollar after the comment, to its weakest level in two weeks.
In a letter to European Union member countries and the foreign ministers of the United Nations Security Council's permanent members, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday that the area off the western coast of Cyprus where Ankara plans to conduct exploratory drilling lies entirely within Turkish continental shelf.
