Turkey: Regime Demands US Regime Deliver Fighter Jets or Return $1.4 Billion Payment

Source: Newsweek

“Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded that the U.S. deliver F-35 fighter jets to Turkey or refund the $1.4 billion payment made for them, the Associated Press reported. The order came after Turkey’s recent removal from an international stealth fighter jet program headed by the U.S., which ousted the country after it inked a deal with Russia to acquire S-400 advanced missile defense systems. … The U.S. strongly objects to NATO members using the Russian system, saying it poses a security threat to the F-35s.” (09/30/21)
