The U.S. Department of Defense states that “the United States and NATO support Turkey’s right to defend its airspace and sovereignty, Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook told reporters today following the downing of a Russian military aircraft by the Turkish military.”  

“No U.S. military forces were involved, Cook said, when the Russian aircraft reportedly crossed over the Turkish-Syrian border and into Turkey’s airspace, Cook said.”
