Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan met US President Joe Biden at the recent NATO summit in Brussels. During that meeting, he placed Turkey’s constraints on Biden regarding the S-400 missile system purchased from Russia. He also urged Biden to end sanctions against Turkey. Not only that, Erdogan also appealed to Biden in moves to include Turkey in the F-35 program again.
Biden cleared to buy S-400
Erdogan, who arrived in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, said he made it clear to Biden that Ankara’s position on the S-400 was irreversible. He also said I told Biden not to expect Turkey to take any further action on the F-35 or S-400. Because we’ve already done our part on the F-35.
You didn’t give us Patriot, so you made your own arrangements
The Turkish president shouted that we ask you for the Patriot air defense system, but you didn’t give it to us. On the contrary, you also removed the Patriot systems that were already deployed at our military bases. What can we do? We have solved this problem ourselves. At the end of 2017, Turkey and Russia signed a $ 2.5 billion agreement for the delivery of four S-400 mobile air defense and missile battery units.
