Ankara plans to receive a new offer from the USA on F-35 and Patriot air defense systems


According to the channel, the United States and Turkey are preparing a new free trade agreement, designed to bring trade between countries to the level of 100 billion dollars a year. According to sources, under this agreement, Washington will make Ankara a new proposal for the supply of anti-aircraft systems Patriot and F-35 fighters. Also under this agreement, Turkey will receive exemptions on duties on certain goods.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he plans to negotiate with US President Donald Trump on the possible supply of Turkey with Patriot air defense systems and the return of Turkey to the F-35 fighter development program. Note that Ankara for a long time tried to buy Patriot systems in the USA, but it was refused this, after which the Turks purchased the Russian S-400 air defense system. The reason for the refusal was called Ankara’s desire to receive part of the technologies of the American air defense system for the production of its components on its territory.

Ankara’s acquisition of the Russian anti-aircraft system led to Turkey’s exclusion from the F-35 fifth generation fighter development program. According to Washington, the Russian S-400 air defense system "can learn the secrets of a promising fighter."

      Up to 100 billion dollars. we want to bring trade with Turkey. Turkey decided to compensate for the possible loss of this money from trade with Russia in the event of any events? Is something being prepared? It turns out that Turkey, weighing all the risks in the event of a US war with Iran, decided to return to the West and like everyone satellites to purchase Dead Penguin and Air Defense Sieve fighter-bomber systems so as not to become the next in the list of targets after Iran.

        Turkish trolling.
        Look at a fragment of the meeting of the three presidents on their faces especially Erdogan and the Iranian leader at the time when Vladimir Putin suggested that the Saudis buy s-300 and s-400 ..

          Turkish trolling.

          I think not trolling, but rather a Turkish maneuver for American crest. America cadres Turkey with the growth of mutual trade and trade preferences after it realized that the Turks were leaving, seeing Turkish enthusiasm for the demonstration of the Su-35 and the opportunity to acquire the Su-57 in the future, looking at the plans of Russia and Turkey to bring mutual trade turnover to $ 100 billion . ... And so they decided to make a counter offer.
          And the Turks are currently practicing the "one ass - two chairs" maneuver. And here Erdogan is not particularly reproachful - to become an enemy of America is premature and fraught. In addition, Erdogan is still a balancing act in politics.
          Turkey is now like that bride of two grooms fellow Gifts and signs of attention are strewed. yes

            Here's the news on the topic. Erdogan blown away this time in the direction of the United States.
            Russian Su-35 and Su-57 fighters were no longer needed by Turkey.

            Despite the emergence of information that instead of American F-35 fighters, Turkey intends to acquire a large batch of Russian Su-35 and Su-57 combat aircraft, Turkish national television (Haber Turk - approx. Ed.) Reported that in reality, Ankara and Washington reached an agreement to conclude a contract for F-35 fighters, and therefore, the need for Russian combat aircraft completely disappeared.

              Apparently an offer was made to the Turks, which cannot be refused,

              The Americans tried to kill Erdogan under Obama, but Trump apparently said that he was good and joked about the ban on the F-35, and he would dump trade preferences ... But if the Turks become stubborn, they are terrible and terrible (but at the same time terribly democratic Kurds) will receive many, many wonderful American weapons ... and ammunition from Bulgaria.
              Recent arguments could prove very convincing.
              But this does not cancel the enthusiasm of the Turkish public from the Su-35 demonstration.

      They need a new trade agreement.
      The purchase of Patriot may be a condition for such a transaction.

    The Turks will get what they want, since it is important for the Americans to keep it in their sphere of interests. Their bans are just a game to the public. At the same time, Turkey is steadily building up its military potential and in the global confrontation, the threat from Russia to it is growing.

    But what about the American threats in response to the purchase of the S-400? Or is it a concession for "joint patrolling" in Syria? Probably all the same, 100 billion of trade turnover is more important than threats and assistance to a coup attempt.

      The Americans didn’t want to debunk their myth about the invisibility of the F-35. Now, when Turkey is in their pocket again, it’s possible to transfer the US S-400, or a statement to the public that the S-400 is useless in the fight against the F-35, in response to our jokes about the Patriot air defense system in Saudi Arabia. Turkey was frightened of the fate of Iran, they were taken to fright. Erdogan decided that you’ll go quietly, you will continue.

    But what did the experience of the Arabs not teach the Turks anything? so clinging to this f-35 (which is still a question of what it can do) that they are probably ready to even buy slings and bows with arrows ?! laughing

    - Ah yes Erdogan, ah yes the female dog’s son!
    Well, didn’t he spread the Americans into discounts and concessions by buying only one or two batches of C-400? Launched, and even so beautiful! But Russia and Turkey had more than good formal reasons just a few years ago to almost start a war between themselves. But it did not grow together with someone. Now we have to talk with caliph Recep by persuasion and promises of discounts with preferences. Bravo, Tayyipych, bravo!
    Is it not your GDP that has pushed your GDP again?
    Here, by the way, they were afraid that the Turks would merge C-400 to the mericos. Now is the time to think about whether the same Turks will merge their Patriot to us.

      And what is the point of merging it, if it merged in Saudi Arabia? What interesting things will you find in this decision?

    At first, the USA did not sell the Patriot to Turkey, then it offered to buy it, but give it to NATO specialists and command ... There were no arrangements for the complete transfer of the air defense systems to the Turkish military.
    Now the situation is different, I don’t even know what the Turks can offer. F35 is definitely blocked for the Turks. And everything else is not exclusive and there is a Russian alternative and a European one too.
