Erdogan refused to change the Russian S-400 air defense system to the American Patriot air defense system

Erdogan refused to change the Russian S-400 air defense system to the American Patriot air defense system

Turkey will not abandon the Russian anti-aircraft systems C-400 even if the United States sells it the Patriot system. Washington’s demands to abandon the Russian anti-aircraft system violate the country's sovereign rights. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan made such a statement to reporters after returning from Washington.


In a statement, the Turkish leader emphasized that he considered categorically incorrect the United States demand to completely abandon the Russian S-400 air defense system. He said that such claims violate the sovereignty of Turkey and Ankara is not going to abandon the S-400 in favor of the American Patriot air defense systems.

We told the United States that if they offer Patriot on suitable terms, we will buy it. But we consider categorically incorrect the proposal to completely abandon C-400. There is no question of abandoning the C-400 in favor of the Patriot. It is important for us that in our security system there is C-400. We will buy both C-400 and Patriot, as we diversify our defense system. Our armed forces have such a strategy

- he said.

Commenting on his visit to Washington, Erdogan said that "in general, he was positive," without disclosing details of the meeting with Donald Trump. According to him, further dialogue is needed to overcome the differences.

We want to come to a positive result on (deliveries of American fighters) F-35. But this time I saw that Trump has a much more positive and constructive approach to this topic.

- he added.

Earlier it was reported that Donald Trump allegedly promised Erdogan a trade deal for 100 billion dollars and "circumvention" of the sanctions imposed in response to the fact that Ankara will abandon the Russian S-400 air defense system. This topic was to be discussed during the meeting between Trump and Erdogan during the latter’s visit to Washington. However, judging by the statement of the Turkish leader, the parties failed to come to an agreement on this issue.

        Although, you must admit, abandoning the $ 100 billion deal is not easy. But, it is likely that this time the reputation of the n-owls in the BV played a cruel joke with them. Or maybe the deal itself was not very. Type: abandon the S-400 and you can buy Gulen for $ 100 billion

          Like, you refuse Russian S-400s, send them back to Russians, and in return get the right to buy from us the same number of Patriots for 100 billion. And for this we will not impose sanctions against you.
          So?

        When Erdogan met with Trump, a large model of a Boeing passenger plane was seen in the oval office. They say that this model was not there before, that is, you can guess, in the framework of the 100 mln trade, the purchase of these aircraft from Turkey. most likely will increase the purchase of Turkish steel, boron, textiles, etc.

          As a result of the last two air crashes, Boeing’s reputation has been greatly tarnished. Of course they can offer, but ...

          Mattresses are now raising their steelworkers (distributors) by increasing duties on imported steel. For other positions it is possible, but again, one must keep in mind the fact that an agreement has been reached with the Americans, who have recently demonstrated complete lack of agreement and almost the next day can refuse all agreements. The essence of the negotiations has not been fully disclosed, but Erdogan said that progress has not been achieved, although there is something to continue talking about. In short, we exchanged portfolios of mutual demands and concessions, and now analysts consider the pros and cons that will be obtained at the exit, after which there will be another meeting. Routine in a word.

    Perhaps the Turks were fed up with the fact that their country was a bargaining chip for the British, and then the Americans, during the eighteenth and twentieth centuries. Or the latter found other forces to put pressure on Russia, for example, modern Ukraine or Poland. In any case, America is far away, and it is more profitable to trade with the Turks with Russia. And do not fight with her for the sake of any Lords or cowboys. The main thing is that this should be a trend, and not a whim of one person.

    100 billion trade it doesn’t mean at all that the states will simply give this money to Turkey. There may be a tricky scheme for this amount for refusing 400-hundredths.
    It was possible to take a lease for half a year from Russia, get dibs, and then supposedly return them back.
