US Congress proposed to overcome anti-Turkish sentiments in the country

Turkey is a valuable US ally and therefore it is necessary to overcome anti-Turkish sentiments in the country. This was stated by a member of the US House of Representatives from Ohio and co-chairman of the US-Turkey friendship group in the House of Representatives, Republican Steve Shabo.


The American politician took part in an online discussion hosted by the Turkish American National Coordinating Committee (TASC). Answering a question from Turkey's co-chairman Gunay Evinch, Shabo explained that recently relations between the United States and Turkey "cooled somewhat" due to Ankara's purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft system. However, he stressed that the two NATO allies are too valuable for each other, therefore it is necessary to overcome the split that has arisen.

Turkey has always been a very important ally for the United States. As you know, today the air defense system acquired from Russia has caused some concern both in the Pentagon and in Congress. We must overcome this. Turkey is a very important and strong country. We are NATO allies and friends, I think we must overcome this problem at some point

- said the congressman, but did not explain how Washington and Ankara will solve the problem of the Russian air defense system.

Shabo added that the reason for the large number of anti-Turkish resolutions adopted by the US Congress is the purchase of the Russian S-400 air defense system, as well as the scandal associated with a fight in front of the Turkish ambassador's residence in Washington in 2017.

        Gulen, Gulen, Gulen what ... And what exactly is Gülen? So, just to amuse the under-sultan with his own ego ... He got rid of internal opposition anyway ...

        Here the stakes are higher ... You can try to bargain for a lot. But ... It seems that Erdogan will not succeed ...

          Well yes. Erdogan began to pour oil into the Armenian-Azerbaijani fire - immediately forgiveness for the purchase of the S-400 loomed. A valuable ally again. And it will crawl deeper, spread ... quarrels with Russia - so he will not be given Gulen with giblets (or gutted), he will also be given the Nobel Peace Prize.

            The states began to understand that Pashinyan had drawn a skiff.
            And without kissing Erdogan, they are already trying to save him. Zrada! bully
            Well, they didn't manage to incite Russia and punish them.

        If the US surrenders Gulen, then Erdogan will generally unbelieve .. And the friendship between Turkey and the United States, oh, how inappropriate will be .. So much time and effort was spent to drive a wedge into NATO ..

      They are lobbyists! hi
      They will sing almost anything for their price. Politicians are officially paid.

      Turkish American National Coordinating Committee (TASC). This is an organ of influence on the policy of both Turkey and the United States ... The initiative will be offered, and then they will put money in their pocket!

    Can anyone clarify what is Turkey's interest in this union over the past 30 years? Is that for the security of Turkey from ... the United States?

        If due to the "disappearance of Istanbul" then this is not the laying of the second strait, but just the expansion of the first.

      Look at the shift in Erdogan's rhetoric about NATO during the most tense moments of the recent situation with Idlib. As soon as it smells like a serious showdown, theses like:

      "The crisis in Syria is a threat to the whole of Europe"
      "The Syrian-Turkish border is NATO's southeastern border"
      "We expect NATO's solidarity and additional assistance"

      etc.

      Without the NATO skirt covering him, the Sultan would not have been so "brave" in his geopolitical movements.

        The same thing that won before. It is not the first time the United States has applied sanctions to Turkey, and most likely not the last.
        But Turkey is too valuable as an instrument of influence in the Middle East, Central Asia, in the Transcaucasus, as a force hostile to the Russian Federation, in order to let it go from NATO, whatever it does.

    And not at all Turkey's support for terrorism, persecution of Kurds or military aggression on the territory of third countries))

      But it's true, consider everything that the "Sultan" does to the striped whales ... but the fact of disobedience, and even the hype raised about this, is "exceptional" not in an arc! But, business, there is business and BABOSIKI do not smell if they are in their pocket.

      Yes, in Karabakh, the job is nowhere dirtier, and there is still a chance to drag Russia into a long-term conflict .. They will throw all the devils from Syria, Libya and Iraq here, rubbing their hands with joy .. Pashinyan has finished playing in shit democracy. connects us.

    Yes, there was not a strategic problem. "Lovely ones scold - only amuse themselves." Erdogan "kicked up" in front of the United States, because of the failure to extradite Gillen to him, took offense at the CIA for trying to eliminate him and began, indicatively, to flirt with Russia. He quickly and simply dealt with the EU - harsh blackmail by "refugees", while also earning 6 billion euros. The first step towards the goal of "sultanism" was easy for him. As they say in "in flight".
    Step two. He under the guise of "friendship" with Russia, he brazenly "climbs" into Syria, and successfully solves there, not only the Kurdish problem, but also tore off part of its territory. The third step - he brazenly climbs into Libya, Europe “frowned, the United States“ did not notice, ”Russia“ swallowed. ”The fourth step - diverted attention to Cyprus, and organized a new“ fire ”in the South Caucasus (the age-old patrimony of Russia), openly, declaring to the whole world, I am on the side of Azerbaijan. Where is the ground for him, the British MI6 has prepared. Now everyone is waiting for how Russia will behave. If she "swallows" his run over by going to the "Minsk negotiations", then for the "Sultan" will become a carpet path, move further to the East to Central Asia, Turkic-speaking, former republics
    THE USSR. The Sultan is being implemented, and the United States will fulfill its program - an "anaconda ring" around the USSR - RUSSIA. That is why the US Congress calls for suppressing anti-Turkish sentiments in the United States. And this is another step Erdogan, to his sultan. Russia played with Erdogan, having got itself a new and very big problem.
    The Anglo-Saxons have outplayed us again. For the Anglo-Saxons, Erdogan-Sultan is not a problem, this is their next strategic development against Russia.
    They used it initially in the "dark".

    I wonder what Pashinyan & Co thinks about this? Are they still counting on the support of the Yankees and NATO?

      I see a picture like that since 2014 they have played off Ukraine with the Russian Federation shas set fire to the North Caucasus with the help of Turkey they will set fire to the stalemate and inside the Russian Federation they will lower the ruble below the baseboard and will play inside the Russian Federation) the Russian Federation has already staged a war everywhere and our rulers still believe further to the West, it's time for something although it is possible to do everything according to the plan according to the plan of the west for the collapse of the Russian Federation, I hope this is not so soon they will betray China and the Russian Federation, Japan, etc., and so on, but while they think there was no war, as in the song of the gas sector, until they reach their families until the cock hits and so well, I hope this is not the case! And what do you think ?
