Turkey hinted at new purchases of C-400 complexes

In relations with its partners in the North Atlantic Alliance, Ankara continues skillful speculation around Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

On the sidelines of the Mediterranean Dialogues conference in Rome, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu stated that his country needs more air defense systems and complained immediately that due to the NATO allies refusing to sell such systems, she is forced to look for them "at somebody else".

You do not need to have a third eye in your forehead to understand that we are talking about Russia, and its S-400 complexes, which were recently tested by the Turkish military.

Actually, the head of the Turkish Foreign Ministry himself was quite straightforward and directly warned his overseas partners and allies:

And in the future I will need even more. And if I can’t get the Patriot, it could be the S-400 or other systems.

At the same time, the position of the Turkish diplomat is based on a reinforced concrete justification:

We needed air defense systems, we asked the United States, France and were refused. We wanted to buy systems from the allies, but they did not sell. So we went to others.

In conclusion, we can say that if the United States does not back down from its anti-Turkish position, then Ankara will acquire from Russia not only the S-400, but also new Su-57 fighters instead of the American F-35s.

    It is good that our complexes are well appreciated. But how Turkey bought these our air defense systems, we gave them a big loan and they bought with our money and it is far from clear whether they will give it back or not.

    - Only not with the money of pensioners, otherwise they will poke irrevocable loans almost in the teeth, and pensioners will dive in containers overdue near supermarkets, but almost before a fight !!!

    - Yes .., it is only with Belarus that Russia has all some "misunderstandings" ...
    - And with brotherly (sisterly) Turkey, we have friendship ...- do not spill water ...
    - By the way ... - with "alien to us and distant" Belarus ... - there have never been such financial strains for Russia ... when in Russia it was necessary to impose an additional tribute on the population of Russia in order to somehow compensate for any discounts that Russia once made for Belarus ...

    - But for "dear and brotherly" Turkey, the Russians are ready to tighten their belts even tighter so that Turkey, so close to us, will receive from Russia and the nuclear power plant; and S-400, and cheap loans, etc ... -And even though all this is very, very weighty reflected in the budget of Russia ..., but - "Well, how not to please a dear little man" ... - these are "relatives ".... after all ...
    - And Russia also has "the most dear and beloved brother" ... who lives in the East ... - for him it is necessary ... also "in a kindred way" to try too hard ... - "kin are kin" ... -then there's nothing you can do ... -What kind of accounts can there be between us ... "relatives" ...- Is that only with strangers, like Belarus ...
