US State Department demands Turkey return or destroy C-400


The United States once again demanded that Turkey urgently solve the problem of the Russian S-400 air defense system. According to a senior representative of the US State Department, Washington demanded "destroy, return or get rid" of Russian air defense systems. The text of this statement was circulated by the US Department of State.


According to an American official, supplies of S-400 air defense systems to Turkey are unacceptable. Ankara should soon get rid of the Russian anti-aircraft system in any way. In the event that Turkey destroys, returns, or otherwise removes the S-400, the United States will consider the possibility of supplying them with a Patriot air defense missile system, "which more closely matches their air defense needs." In case of refusal, sanctions will be imposed on Turkey.

C-400 shipments are unacceptable; they put sanctions at risk. True, the time under the CAATSA law is not set and not accurate. You can still talk a lot about where the sanctions will be, what will be the breadth and depth of the sanctions imposed on Turkey

- he said.

At the same time, the State Department did not say anything about the course of negotiations between Erdogan and Trump on this topic. Donald Trump said that "he hopes to resolve the situation with C-400."

Earlier, Turkish President Erdogan, who flew to Washington to negotiate with Trump, said that Turkey did not intend to abandon the Russian anti-aircraft system under any circumstances. Erdogan called Washington’s demands to abandon it a direct intervention in the country's sovereignty.

At the same time, it became known that the United States completely excluded Turkey from the F-35 fifth-generation aircraft development program, replacing Turkish components with parts from other countries.

      The US State Department has demanded that Turkey return or destroy the S-400In the event that Turkey destroys, returns or disposes of the S-400 in any other way, the United States will consider the possibility of supplying them with a Patriot air defense missile system, "which is more suitable for their air defense needs"

      And why not demand that Turkey return to America or destroy American aircraft from the Incirlik air base. And for this, Turkey will consider the possibility of supplying them with an F-100 fighter, which is more suitable for their needs. wink

        So let the American F-35 try to destroy the Turkish S-400. So it will be honest and many questions, at the same time, will be removed smile

          So, it turns out how the F-35 can destroy the S-400 - through the US State Department. What an advanced technology! laughing

        But the Turks can (or not?) Close the entrance of their warships to the Black Sea for Amers.
        But is this likely to be tantamount to Turkey’s withdrawal from NATO? And it would be fun!

      In Turkey, a base with US nuclear bombs. Do you think that the Turks will allow them to pick up these bombs in case of aggravation of relations? The United States is increasingly suffering from verbiage.

Israel will become silent against the Muslim faithful ...... America will drive special forces and pick up their bombs. But this will not happen, Erdogan plays on two sides of the field ....

            While the Turks have nuclear weapons, the Americans can only threaten with a "finger", but they will not be able to take any action. "Always keep your weapons under your pillow, not under your neighbor’s pillow."

          The Turks especially do not need these fifty hydrogen B-61s, although they can spoil the nerves of the Americans. They have very close relations with Pakistan and the Government of Pakistan has repeatedly stated that they can cooperate with Turkey in the field of nuclear development if necessary. Most likely, the Turks will give them these bombs, and there already the base is losing its significance by 50%. Turkey has long wanted to squeeze Americans out of Incirlik, this will be another occasion.

          NATO - a mousetrap, "the entry of the ruble - the exit of one hundred." Designed to destroy the "alien hands" of the USSR - Russia. Hitler didn’t succeed; they collect an even larger “pack”. NATO is not going to defend its members - Turkey "chopped off" the floor of the island of Cyprus from Greece and no reaction. De Gaulle at one time tried to "jump out" of NATO - lost his post, it’s good that not life. Erdogan began to behave "wrong" - he miraculously survived. But they do not stop "pressing" him.

      Nazari! “What should the Turks live on? Besides tourism, Turkey has a developed industry. As they say, from cowards to electronics. In addition, neither Europe nor China will in any way support America’s sanctions, because Erdogan has already threatened Europe with letting go of refugees and since both China and Europe will be happy to occupy the niche liberated by the United States, so, in my opinion, all the State Department’s fuss for comparison is nothing more than the concerns of our Foreign Ministry - it’s hardened — it will fall in love.

    In the event that Turkey destroys, returns, or in any other way disposes of the S-400, the United States will consider the possibility of supplying them with a Patriot air defense system battery,

    replacing the current system with imitation?
    "which is more in line with their air defense needs"

    they would write honestly: not "their" needs, but the needs of NATO as part of the global defense system in the event of a confrontation with the Russian Federation.

    In case of refusal, sanctions will be imposed on Turkey.

    And if it does not help, then it remains to tighten the sanctions regime, and then again and again. This is effective, of course, but very clumsy. Act on the pattern.
    In general, all events now resemble the 30s of the twentieth century, but not in Europe. Fever. The crisis is near.

    Yeah, right now .. S-400 Turks are already sawing on dental fillings. I’m wondering what place do Americans think at all ?!

    US State Department demands Turkey return or destroy C-400

    The most powerful advertisement for the S-400, from the lips of "the United States"! The line is growing before our eyes! good
    But, not for the "patriots" and the "iron domes" no

    According to an American official, Turkey’s S-400 SAM delivery is unacceptable. Ankara should soon get rid of the Russian anti-aircraft system in any way. In the event that Turkey destroys, returns, or otherwise removes the S-400, the United States will consider the possibility of supplying them with a Patriot air defense system battery

    Why do States think that they all owe something?
    And yes, a cheerful promise to "consider the issue" and not to put the "Patriots" in place of the S-400 (after AFTER they were abandoned). I understand Erdogan, whom the Americans initially hint at, that he, whom you can easily breed, without giving anything.

      How dare you ask such questions about the chosen nation of the first and exceptional?

        Who chose them? Where did they get expelled from?

          They were excluded from humans. After Abu Ghraib and the killing of the Italians, which got away with them, they excluded themselves from the people and appointed themselves Gods. Bye Capitol.

    The Turks can safely return them. They don’t need to worry. S-400 did not cope with the task, in general, in Syria with periodic Israeli walks. Including 3 days ago.

    Linking the F-35 with the S-400, and not with the S-300 or S-350 ...
    Apparently the truth is that their F-35 glows like a Chinese New Year garland on the S-400 radar, of which of course the Turks will not be able to remain silent, and maybe even lay out screenshots.
    I don’t remember if the Turks were given at least one F-35, it seems that there was something, maybe the Turks have already tried to look at the F-35 through the S-400 rajar? I would definitely try!
    That’s probably what they’re afraid of, it’s interesting that they fly on the Ingerlik or flew the F-35?

    In the event that Turkey destroys, returns, or otherwise removes the S-400, the United States will consider the possibility of supplying them with a Patriot air defense missile system, "which more closely matches their air defense needs"

    And did these people write all the marketing books? By sales? And customer service?

      I thought the same thing. It sounds like destroy your car and we will consider selling you ours. Apparently quite a Turk for a sucker is considered with such an advertisement.
      American politics are increasingly reminiscent of a senile nursing home

        So they were offered to sell the Patriot .... but NATO will command it, and not the Turks. Offer of the year!

    Turkey seems to have ordered 4 divisions, but they have 1 battery in return? Something on the scale does not seem to converge. The most interesting thing is that our c400s must somehow be included in the NATO recognition and communication system, otherwise they will begin to naughty with American or some other NATO aircraft, our specialists in any case should service this complex. That is why it seems that the US is losing its nerves.

    Here it is striped impudent, I am already amazed. And this is with the Turks, their NATO allies. I can imagine what they will say to the Ukrainians when they get bored worse than the bitter radish. They are as if they are being driven into slavery like blacks, that’s why Kovtun will be surprised, but for us.

    But interestingly, the United States is catching up with whom the Turks are defending themselves?
    And what can they do, they will send an aircraft carrier group? There they will remain, the Turks are not Ukrainians for you, where you sit there and get down)))

    The latest news from Yemen - the Hussites with a rocket fired by C-125, shot down the Saudi F-15. What can we say about the possibilities of the S-400 against the F-22 or F-35. That's why the United States is spinning like a skillet.

    Turkey will destroy, return or get rid of it in some other way from S-400,

    Here's another key ... Under the contract, the Turks have the right to sell to someone our (already their) complexes?
