Nine Reasons Why Turkey Purchasing The S-400 Missile Defence Systems?

Nine Reasons Why Turkey Purchasing The S-400 Missile Defence Systems?”

Russian S-400 Triumph medium-range and long-range surface-to-air missile systems drive during the Victory Day parade, marking the 71st anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in World War Two, at Red Square in Moscow, Russia, May 9, 2016.

The move follows a meeting on February 14 between the leaders of Turkey, Russia, and Iran in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi to finalize a deal reached past year on the creation of a demilitarized zone in the region.

Summers said those consequences would encompass losing US military sales to Turkey, including the long-awaited sale of the United States' new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet.

Erdogan breaks silence on US to stand by Russian missile deal

Erdogan added that Turkey may consider even investing in the more advanced Russian S-500 system.

The top US Commander in Europe, Curtis Scaparrotti, told the Senate Armed Services on Tuesday that the Pentagon should refuse Turkey's planned purchase of 100 Lockheed Martin F-35 Joint Strike Fighters if Ankara goes through with buying the S-400s. All of these countries except for Canada, Denmark and Turkey are already receiving deliveries of the F-35. Russian Federation would ultimately learn how the S-400 could take out an F-35. Besides Turkey, Russia has also agreed to sell the S-400 system to India and Saudi Arabia. We will start joint production.

Erdogan said "no one should attempt to tame Turkey" with threats on trade and that his country wouldn't agree to a US proposal to sell its own Patriot missile-defense system unless it shares the technology.

The East Dunbartonshire property of Rodgers was broken into, but no-one was injured during the incident. A police investigation has been launched and enquiries are ongoing.

Turkey has been involved with the F-35 development for a long time, but its acquisition of the warplane has been opposed by some members of Congress amid the deteriorating relationship between Washington and Ankara over a range of issues.

This week, despite the central bank maintaining interest rates well above inflation, Turkey's currency has fallen 1.5pc - largely due to renewed concerns over relations with Washington, traders said.

However, when he woke up the next day, even more snow had fallen, making it impossible for him to hike to get help. The Cascade Range in central OR has been hammered for more than a week by a series of intense snowstorms.

Summers said that if Turkey buys the S-400, "then they would not get the F-35s" or the Patriot system.

The US warned this week that it could retaliate by blocking Turkey's planned purchase of the next-generation F-35 fighters it's helping to build.

But in the larger political context, Mr Stein said the the S-400 deal "appears to be a political arrangement between Mr Erdogan and [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, so any last minute cancellation would also have spill over effects on their personal relationship".
