Campaign to block sale of F-35s to Turkey gets boost


The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the National Defense Authorization Act (351-66), which includes suspending the sale of F-35 fighter jets and all major defense equipment deliveries to Turkey. The development is seen as the result of robust campaigning by the Hellenic American Leadership Council (HALC) and the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA). The issue will now be debated in the Senate. [Reuters]
