Erdogan Does Not Expect US Sanctions on Turkey Over Russia Deal
Thursday, 20 June 2019 23:46 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday he did not expect the United States to impose sanctions on Turkey over its planned purchase of a Russian missile defense system, but would retaliate if it did.

Speaking at a rare news conference for foreign media in Istanbul, Erdogan repeated that the purchase of Russian S-400 systems was a 'done deal' and said the United States should think carefully before imposing sanctions on Turkey, a NATO member.

Turkey has been at loggerheads with the United States for months over Ankara's planned purchase of the Russian missile defense system, which Washington says is incompatible with NATO's defense network and could compromise its F-35 fighter jets ” an aircraft Turkey is helping build and planning to buy.

The United States is threatening to impose sanctions on Turkey unless it scraps the plan to buy the Russian S-400s. Erdogan has refused to back down. On Thursday he said deliveries are likely to start within the first half of July.

Ankara has been pinning hopes on Trump to waive sanctions. Erdogan said while he enjoyed good ties with Trump, he could not say the same about relations between Ankara and other U.S. officials.
