WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday the United States was continuing to evaluate how it would respond to Turkey’s purchase of Russian S-400 missile defence systems.

“We continue to evaluate how to apply sanctions in order to achieve our end objective,” Pompeo said under questioning from Democratic Senator Bob Menendez at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
