Erdogan: The USA does not yet have Patriot air defense systems for Turkish supplies

61

Washington has not yet responded to Ankara’s request for Turkey’s supply of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM). This was stated by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.


Returning by plane from Baku, Erdogan gave an interview to Turkish journalists, in which he stated in particular that Ankara had not yet received a response from Washington to a request for the supply of American anti-aircraft systems.

Regarding the supply of Patriot air defense systems, I will say very clearly. There are currently no Patriot air defense systems that America would be willing to deliver to us. We made an offer and said: "if you deliver us Patriot air defense systems, we will buy them from you"

- he said.

In addition, the Turkish leader added, the US still has not provided Turkey with the previously promised support in the Syrian province of Idlib. However, he did not specify what kind of support the Americans promised the Turks.

In the course of our conversation with Trump, we were given a promise to support us. However, no support has been received so far. Apparently, we need to negotiate again (...)

- he said.

Earlier, Bloomberg reported that Turkey sent the United States a request for the supply of two Patriot air defense batteries as support against the backdrop of the unfolding situation in Idlib province. The Turkish Ministry of Defense did not rule out the deployment of air defense systems on the southern border of the country - in Hatay, to monitor the situation in the Idlib de-escalation zone.

        hi Victor.
        In the light of recent events (NATO allies have already sent, so they have sent) Erdogan began to rush to extremes (from threats against Syria, Russia and Iran to requests for a meeting with Putin). At the same time, he is transferring the last remnants of his armored vehicles to the Idlib region (he is up to some kind of subtlety). You can understand him in a simple way: - will leave Syria amid fanfare, the opposition protects his defeat and - kirdyk; - will continue in the same spirit, will suffer a real defeat, which he will not be forgiven in Turkey - again kirdyk. The United States will not fit "in the field" for him (elections are on the way), and the "Europeans" will even dance in funerals.

            this rumor, it seems to me, was launched by Fidan's trolls to add more confusion to the history of the coup. now in turkey it is already clear to everyone that the putschists were "led" all the way and let them break the wood.

            Everything is much simpler and without much conspiracy. It so happened that on the eve of the "putsch" the planned meeting of Russian Foreign Minister S. Lavrov and US Secretary of State D. Kerry took place, who in a private conversation dropped the phrase that the United States will definitely support the events that will take place in Turkey in the coming hours and provide support to the forces "goodness and justice". Well, then you know ... In short, Kerry let it slip himself. hi

      In February, the Russian Armed Forces received 4 S-400 divisions in 1490 regiments near Tosno + 2 more divisions are expected in Yekaterinburg 185 ZRP and Samara 568 ZRP

      While in power in Turkey, Erdogan will not give him either the F-35 or the Patriot. Erdogan is too ambitious and his policies are contrary to the interests of the main US allies in the region by Israel and the KSA. So either
      with them in everything, but then let him forget about his ambitions and plans for a new Empire, independent politics or against them in everything, for the Muslim Brotherhood, that is, roughly speaking along the path of Iran, but on the side of the Sunnis. Erdogan is now between these two options and does not know what to choose. On two chairs, he clearly will not sit.

    Trump is handsome, he can promise to support Turkey, and not only morally; maybe even good to say something about Turkey on camera ... In general, easy.
    Erdogan probably naively believed that for him in Idlib before the Russian Federation they would harness ?! Well, he "naively believed", and Trump intricately put it; and on his Wishlist, and on his interests in Syria. For the situation may not develop as the United States would like, but it is stupid to introduce new variables into an easily predictable situation.

And I got it on the vine, because I'm not interested in it, and that's not what my post was about. And if you start to write on my words in the style of communal gossip "here he is, and here she is"; then perhaps you should get acquainted with the Russian language, and how to read it.

      usual diversification, because the capabilities of the Russian Federation in countering their own S-400s are not known. And Russia is a global player, and a very dangerous neighbor; and it’s doubly dangerous if you, being her neighbor, have different views and interests from her. That is, it is impossible to exclude the fact that the Russian Federation will make you cancer, and therefore Turkey is trying to be more independent, but everything is moving in the direction that the United States will stick it on the cheek.

          Turkish aviation does not fly, but arta is pounding. You can watch the video of the broads, firstly Turkish drones calmly barrage, where is the air defense? Secondly, the art is punctuated by the buildings and clusters of foot soldiers, each shot is 2-3-killed, according to Neyrab about 20 I only counted from the video. There are no reports about aviation, neither about ours nor about the Syrian one, only in the south the offensive operation is supported.

    Yes, the Americans will not give a patriot, especially in such a situation. Such systems are an element of politics - if they sell it, along with Erdoganushka’s obligations, he signs what Trump needs, then the conversation will go on, and even then it will be delayed for several years. They would now exchange Erdogan for their own - he obviously took the S-400 for independence from the United States.

    I read the comments and decided to insert five kopecks. The Muslim world is a strange world. They can be at enmity with each other as much as they want. But they will never accept the "infidels" ... not with good ... and even more so. Erdogan DOES NOT resolve issues in Turkey. "Doctor" Ko decides for him. Which closely "works" with both the Americans and the Israelis. Israel is already selling oil to Turkey. Question: who is selling !? Syrian, of course. Americans are in one team with Israel and Great Britain.
    Great Britain - gray cardinal of roulette Fed.
    USA - the headquarters of the "elite", and the machine d \ dollar.
    Israel is a performer of dirty deeds.
    Turkey will continue the conflict with Russia. At the same time, they will dull their vigilance, saying that this is the negotiations.

    Although ... it's okay, he already has experience, he will once again publicly apologize, but he will hand over the S-400 for detailed study to the United States, as in his time to Putin, and the F-35 and the Patriots will be for it.

    SAM Patriot - a sieve with a tarnished reputation. Therefore, if Erdogan decides to use this air defense system in a real combat situation, then this will further lower the prestige of American weapons. And why do you think the United States froze the supply of F-35 Turkey? Due to the fact that the S-400 will definitely detect the stealth, and Turkey will talk about it (even privately). In America, no fools give the opportunity to disgrace themselves.
