The Turkish edition (newspaper) Daily Sabah informs the public about this. The newspaper is published in English, German, Arabic and Russian, owned by Turkuvaz Media Group, which is owned by one of Erdogan's friends. So this newspaper often advertises the ruling Justice and Development Party (RPS) in Turkey and will not publish inaccurate information regarding Erdogan.

East is a delicate matter. But we remember very well how in August 2019 the United States officially refused to sell the aforementioned Patriots to Turkey. This was dictated by the fact that Ankara had already bought the S-400 Triumph long-range and medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems from Moscow.
By the way, Erdogan intends to discuss with the US President Donald Trump the acquisition of the Patriots on the sidelines of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. In addition, it must be recalled that the military of Turkey and the United States have already embarked on ground patrols in northeastern Syria. Moreover, soon there may to appear joint Turkish-American military bases. So curtsies of Ankara towards Washington are quite possible.
