Ankara denies sending request to purchase Patriot air defense system from USA

Ankara denies sending request to purchase Patriot air defense system from USA

Ankara completely denies sending Washington a request for the purchase of two American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. This is stated by the official representative of the Ministry of Defense of Turkey.


According to the representative of the Turkish military, Turkey did not request from the United States the purchase of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to "deter Syrian forces."

This message is not true.

- said the representative of the Ministry of Defense of Turkey.

As previously reported by foreign media, and in particular, the Boomberg agency, Turkey requested the United States to supply two Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems. At the same time, the agency referred to the statement of high-ranking Turkish military.

According to the publication, Ankara asked Washington to deploy two Patriot missile defense systems on the southern border in order to "be able to strike in the event of any future attacks by the Syrian forces with the support of the Russian aviation".

There is evidence that the request was transmitted last week to US Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey. It was assumed that the Patriot complexes will be used by the US military precisely on the border with Syria to block the departure of Russian aircraft in the area.

    Either the United States refused to supply, or the Turks want to "put a shadow on the wattle fence" and make the deployment unexpectedly.

          Thanks Aron for the humor good

          The deliberate alienation of the M4 highway to the north, the lack of Turkish posts on the highway itself and the rather low concentration of posts in the Al-Gab valley and south of the highway.

            Greetings comrades. Happy holiday to you!
            On this topic. And why doesn’t anyone think that the info about Ankara’s request for the supply of patriots is a dek from the Yankees to stimulate the development of tension between the Turks and us, in the right direction?

            Eeee .... Here a matter of principle.
            There are 2 reasons why I do not allow the possibility of delivery of the Patriots:
            1) Why didn’t Turkey have Patriots before? No one wanted to strengthen the Turks against the Greeks.
            If they put it now, the Turks will not be returned back, but the Greeks will be lost. After all, the Greeks give Crete to an American base for 10 years. It costs a lot.
            https://topwar.ru/166160-ssha-namereny-razmestit-vojska-na-krite.html
            2) If Erdogan buys the Patriots he:
            - he will waste money, but he won’t be able to shoot down Russian planes anyway, not an eccentric,
            - while he receives these Patriots and educates his people - Idlib will already be Syrian,
            - no one can warn of a new coup ...
            I don’t see any advantages for Erdogan, but there are a lot of minuses.
            The Yankees have the money and the Turkish quarrel with us, while the problems with the Greeks are in the red.
            So there will not be this deal now, as it was not before. hi

              in our case means nothing. Can't you really know the whole real deal? For example, what are the undoubted advantages of Erdogan from the mess with Idlib, weighed down by probable graters with Russia? But, after all, rushing like a boar. What is he hoping for?
              A muddy story, in short. You can’t look at it from the sofa ...

    Naturally, the Turks will deny such information, after giving it to the media. Erdogad wanted to do everything secretly, and then confront us with a choice - or a refusal to support the Syrian army, or downed planes of our Air Force. Only here, the USA does not need counter-advertising, in case these complexes are suddenly destroyed or captured, which is the worst of all. Therefore, the discharge of information about the order of the patriots confused the sultan, waiting for these complexes from the United States, with all his plans.

      NATO does not trust Turkey Patriots. In Turkey, at its request, the Patriots were deployed from the presence of the German Dutch army and these systems were controlled by the military from these countries. Turkey does not have the Patriot systems themselves, nor the Turkish squad trained for it. But the Americans still seem to be allies of Turkey.

    A very unpleasant situation for all parties, if our plane is attacked with an American rocket, the Trump administration will be substituted, but on the other hand, the Americans really want to go to the Turkish market, on the other hand, the Turks can’t use 400 against the VKS, and shoot like that. We will see.

    That is, the Russian sultan in white suggested that the Americans bring down Russian planes in the sky of Syria. They politely declined such an offer.
    But.
