Turkiets köp av ryska S-400 luftvärnssystemet

Recommended Posts

Startar en tråd om Turkiets köp av ryska S-400  luftvärnssystemet och konsekvenserna av detta. Bland annat Turkiets köp av F-35 och framtiden för Turkiets fortsatta NATO-medlemskap.

The shipment arrived in an airbase in the capital Ankara on Friday, the Turkish defence ministry says.

The move will anger the US, which has warned that Turkey cannot have both the S-400 anti-aircraft defence system and US F-35 fighter jets.

Turkey and the US are Nato allies - but Turkey has also been establishing closer links with Russia.

A Nato official told the AFP news agency that the body was "concerned" about Turkey's acquisition.

En av de mer märkliga omständigheterna runt den här affären är att närmandet mellan Turkiet och Ryssland verkar ha kommit efter att Turkiet sköt ner ett ryskt stridsflygplan.

Beror på hur man ser på saken, närmandet har ju pågått längre och är ju inte avhängig just nedskjutningen av  su-24.

 

Men det kan anses lite lustigt ja.

Trump Says U.S. Will Cancel Turkey’s Purchase of F-35 Planes 

 

President Trump said Tuesday that the United States will cancel the purchase of more than 100 F-35 fighter jets by Turkey because of its acquisition of a Russian antimissile defense system, even as his administration indicated it was still wrestling with sanctions mandated under U.S. law. 

“It’s not a fair situation,” Trump told reporters as he began a Cabinet meeting. Making clear his reluctance to ban the aircraft sale, Trump repeated his contention that Turkey, a NATO ally, was forced to meet its defense needs by buying the Russian S-400 system because the Obama administration would not sell it the U.S.-made Patriot system.
