Dear Mr. Christoforou:
Thank you for contacting me regarding your concerns about the potential sale of US arms to Turkey.
Turkey poses a significant threat to global security, and we must do all we can to oppose their aggression in the Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean regions. The notion that the United States should trust Turkey to respect global norms and the international order is not only dangerous, but jeopardizes our security and that of our allies. I strongly believe the US and the international community should take diplomatic actions to hold Turkey accountable for any offenses it may commit.
Ultimately, it will be up to Congress to evaluate the implications of this proposed arms sale and whether it is in the best interest of the United States and our allies.
Again, thank you for contacting me. Please keep in touch with your thoughts and opinions. 
Charles E. Schumer 
United States Senator
