The United States has urged Turkey to abandon the purchase of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system from Russia, warning Ankara of the consequences of its decision, Haberturk reported citing a source in Washington.

According to the Turkish newspaper, an unnamed American official expressed his concerns over Ankara’s purchase of Russian surface-to-air missile systems, explaining that they could “negatively influence the interoperability of NATO” and assuming that Washington could impose sanctions in response to the recently adopted law.

“We want to help Turkey find a better alternative to meet its air defense needs,” the official said.

Earlier in February, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu spoke out against the language of threats regarding its purchase of the S-400 systems.

“We do not use and will not accept the language of threats. Yes, the US Congress adopted a law [on anti-Russia sanctions]. But we need to ensure our national security. We would like to purchase the means to ensure it from our allies … We spoke to not only Russia but with other countries too. We finished talks with Russia long before the Congress, only small details were left,” he told a press conference with his American counterpart Rex Tillerson.

The US State Department has previously threatened to apply “appropriate measures” against countries willing to buy Russia’s S-400 systems.

In December 2017, Moscow and Ankara finalized an agreement on the delivery of the S-400 surface-to-air missile systems.

No chance in h**l Turkey will abandon the S-400 purchase. The US will eventually turn on Turkey (If the US does not collapse) at some point. US issue with Turkey is that it is close to Israel. And Israel does not allow a Muslim or Arab nation to be either militarily or economically strong.

isn’t “thanksgiving ” a sort of common ramadan for both US and ottoman barbarians? ritually gulping down the totem opteryx? both being parasite societies, nourished on the ekstirpation of their betters…

Currently AFAIK Turkey gets US military money. Like Pakistan or Egypt. So maybe?

Well, Yanks are right on one point : integrating S-400 in a western built IADS (integrated air defence system) in near impossible. Greece has already the same problem with their S-300 : you need totally separate radars, computer network, even different AWACS : at the difference of Su-30, Su-35 or Mig-35, there is no NATO-compatible computer-bus in Russian SAM systems. I think the article is biased : Greece already uses Russian SAMs for long, some other east-EU countries do so as it’d simply be too expensive to totally re-shape all their IADS, none of them was threatened of any kind… Read more »

LOL we’d better leave the poor innocent Hatti out of it, there’s enough trouble rising from the ottoman shitbag; all their neighbours like the Ottomans like Fußpilz – had Timor Lenk only done his work with a little bit more sense of duty, we’d been spared this peste

Yes. But these countries do not get money from the US.
