US to help Turkey in war with Syria if Ankara abandons S-400

The United States is once again trying to undermine the situation in Syria and drive a wedge into relations between Turkey and Russia, making Ankara attractive offers.

During a telephone briefing on Wednesday, US Permanent Representative to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchinson said that Washington would assist Ankara in the war with Syria if it gets rid of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

Media quoted Hutchinson as saying:

We hope that Turkey will be able to repulse Syrian aggression with the support of Russia, as a result of which many Turkish soldiers were killed. We hope that we can put together a package of assistance to Turkey. We hope that Turkey will not place the Russian air defense system in its country - it holds back the potential that we can provide them to counter Syrian aggression.

Concluding the statement, the American Permanent Representative expressed the hope that the Turks will remove the Russian air defense system, which is located in the very center of Ankara.

The statement, which would have been relevant a month ago, now looks out of place against the background of the agreements reached between the presidents of Russia and Turkey on March 5 to introduce a ceasefire and joint patrol of the M4 highway.

Yes, it cannot be said that everything is smooth and the agreements are fully implemented.

However, do not forget that Russia, unlike the United States, did not suit the coup attempt in Turkey, and always fulfilled its obligations.

    fight back Syrian aggression

    Syria attacked Turkey?

    Turkey will not place the Russian air defense system in its country - it holds back the potential that we can provide them

    I wonder how the Russian complex, which is in Turkish hands, multiplies potential by zero hegemons?
    You read them and understand that a hamburger is not the best brain substitute.

    - And what, in Turkey everything is so safe with the epidemic of coronavirus ??? - Something ... somehow strange ...
    The Turks themselves are silent about this ... and our media are silent about this ...
    - Personally, I can only guess at this point; that our guarantor and Erdogan - these two friends "do not spill water" nevertheless carry and cherish the cherished hope that everything will soon subside due to the epidemic, that everything ... "will settle down" ... and ... and .. and ... and ... and a new unbridled innumerable horde of mindless Russian tourists will rush to Turkey ... - That's how ... - Russia needs to help "brotherly Turkey" ... - "War is war, and tourists - according to regulations "...
    - And now start broadcasting that in Turkey there are such and such problems with the epidemic ... - there are so many sick ... and that there are no masks, no drugs, no hospitalization for all sick people, there are no medical personnel and special equipment for diagnostics and for taking preventive measures ... - And, most likely, things are in Turkey ... - if not worse ... - After all, there are whole refugee camps in Turkey, where sanitation is "already at the highest level" (one got sick - and all the refugee camp received a collective infection) ... - And, if today we shed light on all this that is taking place in Turkey today ... then even our Russian tourists, who are used to thinking with their seats ... - even and they can turn their "Turkish tourist skis" 180 degrees and go to other places ... - So they hide information about Turkey - both Turkish and Russian media ...

    US to help Turkey in war with Syria if Ankara abandons S-400

    -Yes, what kind of "help" the Americans are promising Turkey ... -Most likely the Americans are blackmailing Erdogan by publishing information about the real situation with the coronavirus epidemic in Turkey ... -More you won't give up, Turks, from the S-400 ; so we will tell the whole world about the scale of your epidemic ...

      - And in the war with Syria, the Americans will always help Turkey ... - as they helped - they will continue to help ... - And no S-400 (which Turkey acquired) can prevent the Americans from doing this ... - The Americans are just bluffing his attempt to blackmail Turkey ...
