US may offer Turkey new terms for Patriot and F-35 shipments
Washington may make Ankara a new proposal for the supply of American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems and fifth-generation F-35 fighters. This was reported to informed sources by Haberturk.
According to the publication, the parties are preparing to sign a free trade agreement at the level of $ 100 billion. As part of the document, Turkey will receive a new proposal for the supply of Patriot and F-35 air defense systems. Washington will also reduce duties on aluminum and steel for Ankara.
On September 21, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan promised to consider buying Patriot from the United States under all the conditions of Ankara.
Moscow and Ankara entered into an agreement on the supply of S-400 air defense systems in 2017, after which the United States opposed the deal and began to threaten Ankara with sanctions for the acquisition of Russian weapons. However, the Turkish side did not refuse the contract.
Currently, the supply of S-400 to Turkey has already been completed. The Turkish military will be trained to work with anti-aircraft missile system until January 2, 2020.
In August, the United States officially withdrew its offer to Turkey to sell Patriot to it instead of the Russian S-400. Ankara was also removed from the F-35 fighter program. The American leader Donald Trump then said that he would not sell aircraft to Turkey, since the country agreed to buy Russian S-400s.
