Turkish Minister: If the S-300 in Greece are compatible with the NATO air defense system, then the S-400 air defense system in Turkey is also compatible with it

21

The Turkish Defense Minister has once again criticized the United States for the sanctions imposed against Ankara in connection with the purchase of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia. Recall that earlier Washington refused to transfer already paid fifth-generation F-35 fighters to Turkey, and then introduced economic restrictions against the Directorate of the Defense Industry, including freezing accounts and banning the supply of technology and military components to Turkey.


According to Turkish Minister Hulusi Akar, "Turkey is once again making attempts to come to an agreement with the United States on lifting the sanctions." The Turkish Defense Minister recalled that Washington, which talks about the incompatibility of the S-400 with the NATO unified air defense system, was asked to create a working group for a real assessment of compatibility or incompatibility.

Hulusi Acar:

The American side does not agree to this. We have serious concerns about this.

The Turkish minister noted that while the United States supports the anti-Turkish sanctions, Turkish factories continue to regularly fulfill their contractual obligations and supply the United States with components for F-35 fighters. Akar added that Turkey "demonstrates the implementation of agreements within the framework of allied relations."

Hulusi Akar on the US and the F-35:

But our friends and allies for some reason do not consider it necessary to fulfill their part of the obligations. They insist not to supply even the equipment that we have already paid for for a long time.

The Turkish Defense Minister accused the United States of double standards, pointing out that if "the S-300 of the Greek army are compatible with the unified NATO air defense system, then the S-400 air defense systems of the Turkish armed forces are also compatible with it." According to Akar, if Greece deactivated its S-300s in Crete, then "it would be possible to talk about a unified allied approach."

        I doubt that after the Yankees attempt to remove him, he will be obedient, he leads an independent policy, he raves about the empire and even uses the barmaley for his own purposes.

        Greece is a natural part of the Christian world. And Perdogan is in fact an enemy for everyone: Russia, the United States, Greece, Saudi, Israel, Egypt. And the States quite reasonably decided that the aggressive Turkish sultan did not need such a dangerous toy as 5th generation aircraft.

          Aha! How! Remind you words American President Roosevelt on the Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza: "Yes, he is certainly a son of a bitch, but this is OUR son of a bitch!"
          So, as soon as the "sultan" for the states ceased to be "their son of a bitch ", he became just a" son of a bitch "for them! And before that, his aggressiveness, states somehow didn't care! On the contrary, she even somehow impressed me!

            So after all, Perdogan did not immediately show himself as the gravedigger of Ataturk's legacy. Everything happened gradually. Perdogan has a marvelous talent: he ruined relations with absolutely everyone. If not for the S-400, the Americans would have found another reason to cancel the delivery of the F-35. For the aggressive Perdogan with his imperial ambitions and the 5th generation aviation is not a couple, not a couple, not a couple ...

      The Turks will create their new 5th generation aircraft earlier than the Yankees will allow them to sell "penguins"!

      Business and nothing personal. The conveyor is built and it needs to be recouped. Yes, one screw for such an aircraft costs several thousand bucks. If Turkey refuses, the United States will not be left without an airplane, but some other country or Greece will do it. So why lose income on the one hand, or maybe give it to the enemy on the other?

      good With one small amendment: "Any contract is NOT an empty piece of paper for them, but exactly until then, while he (the contract) is profitable for them (states)! "
      Why is that? Yes, try to break the agreement, which is PROFITABLE for the states! What a howl will rise! They will drag them through the courts .... Well, if the contract is NOT beneficial for them - well, then it costs less for them, the paper on which it is written!

    Well said. This "non-integration" was incomprehensible from the very beginning. Take Indonesia - along the way, this country "integrated" in its Armed Forces the greatest variety of weapons from various manufacturers. And nothing, everything works for them.

    Say what you like, but the USA is practically
    world dictator of his will. If everyone capitulates to these sanctions, then the world gendarme, the hegemon. I've been thinking that if they introduce a lot of sanctions against many countries (especially countries with strong economies), then they themselves should suffer from this. And now I am a little surprised at how boldly they impose sanctions and how much (it turns out) they have absorbed (make up) the world economy. The enemy is strong ...

    laughing Well, the number of sane soldiers on Topvar tends to zero. But the number of non-brothers dressed up in the uniforms of these same military is simply off scale.
