WASHINGTON - After months of warnings, the United States has stopped delivery of F-35 fighter jet parts to Turkey in retaliation for Ankara's decision to move ahead with the purchase of a Russian surface-to-air missile system, the Pentagon said Monday.

Top U.S. government leaders have repeatedly threatened to shut down Turkey's plan to buy the F-35 advanced fighter aircraft if Turkey didn't abandon efforts to buy the S-400 Russian system. Halting the delivery of parts and manuals needed to prepare for the aircraft's planned delivery this summer is the first step toward ending the actual aircraft sale.
