Ankara threatened Washington with "back consequences" for pressure on the S-400

United States pressure on Turkey to force local politicians abandoning the use and further purchases of Russian anti-missile systems S-400 will have "opposite consequences." This was stated in an interview with Bloomberg by the representative of Recep Erdogan Ibrahim Kalyn.

This approach pushes us in other directions.

- warned the representative of the Turkish leader.

According to Kalyn, there were also contradictions between the Turkish and Russian sides, but they were overcome through a productive and honest exchange of views. The representative of the Turkish president called on the Americans to act in a similar vein.

Ibrahim Kalyn noted that Ankara can use the S-400 without negative consequences for the North Atlantic Alliance. Politicians in Washington must understand the seriousness with which the Turks approached the implementation of the idea of ​​purchasing Russian air defense systems - the Turkish authorities did not make a decision on the S-400 overnight.

Earlier, the United States offered to abandon Russian weapons for $ 100 billion, but the Turks did not agree, and the head of the Turkish defense complex Ismail Demir expressed his readiness to purchase a second set of anti-aircraft systems of the Russian Federation, subject to the transfer of the military by Moscow. of technologies.

    The Turks tested the S-400 and were convinced that they needed it, it seems that more than .... Now they do not even remember the F-35, there is reason to think about a causal relationship.

      Now they don't even think about the F-35.

      Who told you such a story? They are already puffing with boiling water, so they want the F-35, but only so far everything is limited to Wishlist. And the Turks can threaten Washington in only one way - to quickly create their own fifth-generation fighter, which will be cooler than the American one. Only now the probability of such a development of events is zero. lol
