The preoccupation is new, the theme is old: the State Department again pointed out the unacceptability of the Turkish deal on C-400

The US remains seriously concerned about Turkey’s decision to acquire the Russian anti-aircraft systems C-400, Kommersant Statement by State Department spokesman Heather Nauert.


The preoccupation is new, the theme is old: the State Department again pointed out the unacceptability of the Turkish deal on C-400


In accordance with agreements with NATO - and Turkey is a member of the alliance - they must only purchase weapons and other means that are compatible with the rest of the NATO partners,
Nawert told reporters.

We do not believe that here (the C-400 and the armament of the alliance) have compatibility,
she added.

At the same time, the official refused to comment on the words of US Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell that “the C-400 purchase transaction may adversely affect Turkey’s participation in the program of the American F-35 fighter”.

Recall, the contract for the supply of Ankara ZRS C-400 worth about $ 2,5 billion was signed in July 2017 year. Deliveries were scheduled to begin in March 2020. However, later, Ankara and Moscow agreed to speed up the process and begin deliveries in the summer of next year. All this time after the signing of the agreement, Washington is trying to convince the Turkish authorities to abandon the Russian C-400.

    will push to the last, but the contract is already there, if the Turks refuse to get into the headstock

      Yankees are cunning, the S-400 is very compatible with any NATO aircraft), hence all these squeals

              They accelerate the decision of the Turks, the decision to put Syria S-300.

            And why, in fact, the S-400, and not the “Buki” for example? After all, the S-400 is a long-range interceptor missile. Who, if anything, are the Turks going to land from the sky - the Israelis?

          Dear Heather, everyone has long understood that you are preoccupied. It is not necessary to demonstrate it once again. smile

      What am I thinking ... why are they so excited ... maybe they will want to force Turkey into democracy and tolerance ... and then the S-400 ...

        This, of course, will also be thrown, only the Americans have already tried to Erdogan to democratize, so he is safe, so I think they won’t refuse, his own skin is more expensive

        Well, to “compensate”, it may be “compensate”, but forfeit, you will have to pay .... A S-400 WILL FIND BUYERS !!! Looks like the Indians became interested .....
        And then there's the “extra profit” (in the form of a forfeit) .....
        Yes, and it is unlikely that the Turks will refuse from the “400-ok” - they don’t have “tension” with “mattresses” ... And “400-ki” (even in export performance) for Americans, whatever one may say - the "black box". How to "drown" her - they do not know! This is not the "Patriots" that they can "knock out" at "one moment" !!! The Turks, by the way, EXCELLENTLY understand !!

      Yeah, you won’t get the American Apache out of Patriot, who shoots the Presidential Palace of Erdogan, he has a friend or stranger callsign. But it will demolish the S-400 and the F-35 along with the Israeli crew and US Air Force codes

    So far, fortunately for NATO, they have not checked the compatibility of S-400 missiles with the aircraft of the alliance.

    “The deal to buy the S-400 could adversely affect Turkey’s participation in the F-35 US fighter program”

    Considering that Turkey periodically visits Greece, yes, the partnership in NATO is nowhere stronger ... This is so that both sides know where and how to beat, to completely bewitch each other, and the arrogant Saxons reaped the benefits.

    Any aircraft and other aerospace objects of NATO countries are fully compatible with the S-300. They lie in the State Department (even if they ask in a pentagonal building, they know for sure).

    The USA is pushing its LNG to everyone. Turks basically do not let gas carriers through the Straits. Is there a connection with the purchase of complexes?
