Czech general: NATO has come to terms with the purchase of Turkey C-400

26
The Alliance sees no other way out but to accept Ankara’s decision to buy C-400 anti-aircraft systems from Russia, reports TASS statement by the head of the NATO Military Committee of the Czech General Peter Pavel.




We have to pragmatically approach this situation. What alternative do we have? Do we need to spoil relations with Turkey because of some issues, when we know that Turkey is ready to discuss these issues? It would be very unwise
Pavel said in an interview with US News & World Report.

According to him, Turkey is “an important partner of NATO not only because of its geographical position, in particular, it borders with Iraq, Iran and Syria, but because of its military resources - Ankara has the second largest army in the alliance”, in which 29 countries are included. In addition, Turkey is the only state in NATO with a "predominantly Muslim population."

As the magazine writes, NATO commanders do not like Ankara’s decision for two reasons: “military - C-400 cannot be integrated into the alliance’s air defense / missile defense system, and political - Turkey will pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Russia, thereby violating the sanctions imposed by the US Congress and administration of Donald Trump. "

Both from Turkey and from our side there is a desire to discuss all the issues that arise. We will also resolve this situation (with the C-400 AAMS),
Pavel noted.

Recall, September 12 Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan announced the signing of a contract for the supply of C-400 ZRS and the deposit by the Turkish side. According to Sergey Chemezov, Director General of Rostec, the amount of the transaction exceeds $ 2 billion.

    "... Czech general: NATO has reconciled with Turkey’s purchase of the S-400 ..."
    Turkey has not yet bought the S-400, and Russia has not yet sold it, and whether it will sell - it is written with a pitchfork on the water ...

      If the Turks give birth, then ours will be sold. And then without any pitchforks.

        Moreover, the pitchfork is in the hands of sworn friends of the Turks.

          about forks: there will be no earlier, but in 20 years all sorts of psheki and other brothers will start "we endured the hegemony of the United States to a certain limit, but everything has an end. Accept us or put in a word to China."

        US sanctions, I’m just ridiculous ... Americans buy rocket engines from us — for the time of deliveries they lift the sanctions, how the engines are received, they put them back ... so we don’t need to sculpt a grandmother, politicians are politicians, and business is business .. ...

    t.d.
    As soon as the speech about getting out of Nata was discussed, NATO immediately resigned itself.
    I feel this is just the beginning, right now Reggie will start pushing allies on other points.

    Turkey has already paid in full the advance payment stipulated by the agreement. Moreover, in rubles.
    China, Russia, Iran and Turkey have decided to trade with each other in national currency or barter transactions.

      Alexander hi
      The fact that NATO has come to terms with Turkey's purchase of the S-400 is alarming: it is not without reason. We were categorically against it, and suddenly - again! And they resigned themselves. Obviously some kind of byaka was conceived ...

        Jedi ......And reconciled. Obviously some kind of byaka was conceived ...
        hi

        And what is the US’s trump card against Turkey now?
        - kick out of NATO?
        - to impose sanctions? (equivalent to the first).
        This is suicide for NATO, Turkey is a nucleus-NATO against Russia.
        The second option remains. Fulfill Erdogan's whims;
        - extradite Gulen?
        - stop supporting the Kurds?
        - to force the EU to accept Turkey, (this is now, not so easy)
        The United States may go for the second option and print Erdogan "dough" so that he pays Russia a penalty for disrupting the order.

          Those who want to dig into the stuffing or make out a cog can not help but understand that Russia will put multilevel "protection against the curious" on export versions. So let those who want to fly racing with elementary particles prepare screwdrivers. wassat

    Who is this Czech general to report something from NATO? This is a test balloon for probing Erdogan's position.

    In general, NATO partners never trusted the Turks. All Turkish air defense on a rotational basis. For the bourgeoisie, this is a very tasty cannon fodder opposite Mother Russia. And here is a whole airspace, and even seeks to secure its sky. Boys and Girls is about 50 gigabytes, even if We provide technology from the late 80s

    Erdogan is not a stupid person at all. After the failed coup d'état and the US’s unwillingness to extradite Gulen, Turkey should think carefully that NATO would not try to make Libya out of it. American-made air defense systems located in Turkey will not intercept NATO bombers, considering them their own. And Russian-made air defense, NATO planes will see and react like an adversary. Turkey will buy the S-400, as if their sworn friends from overseas would not want it.

    Does the Czech tear over what the Turks put on US sanctions? The United States has put much more in all European countries, including the Czech Republic. The general carries this cross and does not understand that his country is occupied by foreign troops?
