Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan called on the United States to fulfill its obligations under the agreement to supply F-35 fighter-bombers.

He also said that it is not necessary to force Ankara to “knock on other doors”.

“We are saying that the US is our strategic partner … I discussed this issue with the US President, and it was discussed at the talks of delegations. If we are strategic partners, then the US should fulfill its obligations,” Erdogan stated.

In December of last year, Turkey and Russia signed an agreement on the supply of S-400 air defense systems. Ankara will buy two batteries of air defense systems, which will be serviced by Turkish personnel. The sides also agreed on technological cooperation in the development of the production of anti-aircraft missile systems in Turkey.

The United States, as well as NATO representatives, repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the supply of S-400 to Turkey. US Assistant Secretary of State Wess Mitchell stated that the purchase of Russian SAMs could negatively affect the supply of American F-35s to Turkey.

In response, Mevlut Cavusoglu , the Turkish Foreign Minister, promised that Ankara would take retaliatory measures against Washington if the deliveries of the fighters were blocked, calling it a possible alternative to cooperation in this area with Russia.

Erdogan Sultan got cold feet and wines after “Turkish Foreign Minister, promised that Ankara would take retaliatory measures against Washington if the deliveries of the fighters were blocked”.

The retaliatory measure is “call” on the US. LOL.
