'Upset' Trump to confront Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan for buying Russian defense system

11 Novembre, 2019, 23:19 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

The US Congress is ready to punish Turkey economically unless it gives up its Russia-made S-400 air defence missile systems, according to United States National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien.

Turkey has not yet activated the S-400 batteries it received, and Washington still hopes to persuade its ally to "walk away" from the Russian systems.

O'Brien told CBS' "Face the Nation" that if Turkey doesn't get rid of the Russian system, Turkey will likely face United States sanctions backed by a bipartisan majority in Congress.

"There is no place in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for the S-400 and for Russian purchases, and that's a message that the president will deliver to him very clearly when he is here in Washington". He says that's a message Trump will deliver to Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn).

English Premier League Report: Manchester United v Brighton and Hove
"Mason Greenwood, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford all scored in midweek which should be good for their confidence". However, Manchester United have only managed to keep two clean sheets in the Premier League so far this season.

One key disagreement is Ankara's purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which Washington says is incompatible with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defenses and threatens its Lockheed Martin LMT.N F-35 fighter jets. There's no place in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for significant Russian military purchases. The Trump administration removed Turkey from the F-35 program in July.

Russian and Turkish troops are now cooperating on the border with Syria, leading to Ankara-Moscow ties to strengthen further, and essentially leading to Kremlin control in the Middle East. President Trump will tell him [Erdogan] that very clearly when he arrives here in Washington, "said O'Brien speaking to CBS".

Earlier this month, the head of Turkey's Defense Industry Directorate said a second S-400 delivery to Turkey may be delayed beyond a planned 2020 timeline by talks on technology sharing and joint production.

The US, Turkey and Russian Federation have also been at the epicentre of the recent fallout in Syria, in which Mr Erdogan oversaw and incursion into the Middle Eastern state to assault Washington backed Kurdish forces, who they deem to be terrorists. Turkey halted the incursion after the Kurds withdrew from a border region under a USA - brokered truce.
