The Trump administration had threatened to expel Turkey from the F-35 fighter program if it acquired the S-400 from Russian Federation, warning the anti-air system could be used by Moscow to covertly attain secret information on the stealth fighter.
The US-made F-35 Joint Strike Fighter "cannot coexist with a Russian intelligence collection platform that will be used to learn about its advanced capabilities", she added.
Turkey received the first shipment of a Russian-made missile defense system last week, in defiance of stark warnings from Trump administration officials that the move would jeopardize U.S. -Turkey relations.
"Unfortunately, Turkey's decision to purchase Russian S-400 air defense systems renders its continued involvement with the F-35 impossible", the White House said in a statement Wednesday.
They say they do not want F-35s to be near S-400 systems because they fear Russian technicians will be able to access the warplane's vulnerabilities.
The Pentagon had already laid out a plan to remove Turkey from the program, including halting any new training for Turkish pilots on the advanced aircraft. "W$3 e will continue to cooperate with Turkey extensively, mindful of constraints due to the presence of the S-400 system in Turkey", Grisham said.
Investors in Turkey have been unsettled by the deal and the prospect of sanctions, a year after a dispute with Washington over the trial of a United States pastor in Turkey contributed to a financial crisis that drove Turkey's economy into recession.
"It is unfair that Turkey, which is one of the [United States'] main partners on the F-35 program, is excluded from it", the ministry said in the statement.

Just one year ago, the Duchess of Sussex , 37, was navigating life as a new member of the royal family and a newlywed. Earlier on in the year, a source told Us Weekly that Harry takes any public attacks on Meghan "very personally".
She said the U.S. authorities have been "pretty clear ... what the ramifications could be".
The cost disclosure follows USA efforts to begin removing Turkey from the program.
After the Pentagon announcement, Turkey's foreign ministry said in a statement: "We invite the United States to return from this mistake which would open irreparable wounds in strategic relations".
"As the president said, the USA still values its strategic partnership with Turkey", Lord added.
The State Department said Wednesday that no decision has been made yet on sanctions over the S-400 deal.
India had signed a contract in 2018 for delivery of S-400 system from Russian Federation. Lockheed Martin produces F-35 jets.
Lord last month said the ouster could be reversed should Turkey comply with the U.S.' requests. Turkey responded by saying the equipment is necessary for securing the country's southern border with Syria and Iran.
However, it has seen relations deteriorate with some North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members and the European Union, who have accused Mr Erdogan of adopting an increasingly authoritarian style following a failed coup in 2016. "We have been working in earnest to develop and implement changes to our supply base and supply chain to accommodate the potential for Turkish removal from the program", she said. "And we are now telling Turkey, because you have really been forced to buy another missile system, we're not going to sell you the F-35 fighter jets".
Turkey has the second-largest army in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, a 29-member military alliance.
