Do not deliver without a report. The United States will complicate the sale of Ankara weapons

The draft defense budget of the United States for 2019 year makes the supply of Turkey’s main types of weapons dependent on the Secretary of Defense’s report on the state of relations between the two countries, reports RIA News.




This is the first draft of the budget, which must then be approved by the lower and upper chambers of Congress. In this case, the Senate can offer its own version of the bill.

The Minister of Defense is not entitled to take any action for the supply of armaments sold abroad with respect to the main defense weaponswhich the congress should be notified of ... to the Republic of Turkey before the minister submits a report to the relevant congressional committees under subparagraph b),
the document says.

This subparagraph is from the head of the Pentagon, so that he, in consultation with the Secretary of State, "no later than 60 days after the budget was adopted, submitted a report on the state of relations between the United States and Turkey."

In particular, the report should include “an assessment of the potential purchase by the Turkish government of the C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from the Russian Federation and the potential implications of such procurement for US-Turkish bilateral relations, including an assessment of the impact on other weapons systems and the United States platform operated jointly with Turkey. "

It is assumed that the head of the Pentagon should indicate alternative C-400 options that Turkey could order from the United States or other NATO member countries.

Recall that Washington has repeatedly expressed concern about Ankara’s plans to purchase Russian air defense systems. Earlier, US Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell said that the purchase of Ankara C-400 may adversely affect the delivery of American F-35 to Turkey.

    There’s another landmine in this - almost all European manufacturers use American systems in one way or another or are partly owned by Americans. Europeans also get American export permits and there may also be an ambush for the Turks.

        The Minister of Defense is not entitled to take any action on the supply of arms sold abroad with respect to the main defense weapon, which must be notified to the congress, .. to the Republic of Turkey before the minister submits a report to the relevant congressional committees according to subparagraph "b",

        And also the Turks should contact the US authorities: "Oh, we are listening carefully to our overlords, we will do everything we order." Exclusivity and rushing. laughing Erdogan is not Poroshenko at all, it’s like a bazaar. repeat

    If the United States, persisting in its insanity, are so kind and refuse to supply arms to Turkey
    Russian defense industry will be forced to replace them

    It would be interesting for ours to see the work of the C-400 and F-35 on one “field”. That would be a sea of ​​information for study and analysis.

    Not news at all. The ordinary unfair competition from the Anglo-Saxons. As they were parasites and robbers of the colonies, nothing changes.
