In the current situation, Turkey’s step to purchase S-400 air defense systems is significant for Ankara’s area denial capabilities.
He’s an absolutely hopeless negotiator and understands nothing about international politics or trade, which is partly why he is about to start a new ‘war’ with Turkey over the S-400 deal with Moscow.
Most significantly, however, the bill further aims to halt the delivery of American F-35 fighter jets to Turkey in a bid to dissuade Ankara from going ahead with the purchase of the Russian-made S-400 missile defense system.
sanctions over the purchase of the Russian S-400 systems by Turkey might trigger a Turkish military operation in northeast Syria, but it will remain the duty of the U.
, such as FETO, the fight against PKK terrorism, the purchase of S-400s, still remain unsolved.
The upcoming days will most likely show some striking developments in the field of foreign policy, as the S-400 missile case, tensions between the U.
experts testify Turkey’s purchase of the Russian S-400 Air Defense System is not incompatible with F-35s.
Turkey's plan to purchase the S-400 air defense systems has brought all groups in the U.
These institutions could link Russia and Turkey in exactly the same way that, in the economic sphere, the two countries are linked to each other by the Akkuyu nuclear power plant, the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, the S-400 deal, tourism, mutual investments, and much more.
sanctions, Ankara openly declared that Turkey’s purchase of Russian S-400 missile defense systems is a “done deal” and cannot be canceled.
Moscow is trying to intensify pressure on Ankara to resolve its position on the S-400 deal, and to sabotage the understandings emerging between Turkey and the U.
While the only consideration for Turkey is the suggestion that F-35s should not be delivered if Turkey goes through with the purchase of S-400s.
As Turkey is among the most prominent and strong nations seeking to balance relations between the major powers of the west and those of Eurasia, Ankara has been singled out for specific harassment, particularly when it comes to Turkey’s decision to buy S-400 missile defence systems from Russia.
Separately, it is worth noting the projects that have become a symbol of bilateral relations, such as the first Turkish nuclear power plant “Akkuyu,” the “Turkish Stream” gas pipeline and cooperation in the defense industry, which will start after the delivery of the Russian air defense systems S-400 to Turkey at the end of this year.
Without admitting a policy failure, the U.S. will not be able to achieve meaningful cooperation with Turkey. That will neither…
And let’s not even get onto the subject of arms procurement and Russian made S-400s.
