#Turkey is sadly teetering on major economic problems. My heart breaks for them. It seems so strange to me that they’re considering purchasing an S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft SAM system from #Russia, when US support at the @WorldBank & @IMF is what they’re probably going to need.
#WashingtonDC has been working closely w/ its @NATO allies in #Ankara on the #Syria situation. The momentum of these positive, constructive relations should be seized upon to further broaden & deepen bilateral engagement. Conciliatory & deferential words/deeds are important.
… one possible path forward is special financing for a MIM-104 Patriot SAM system, w/ rush delivery to #Turkey… a priority for @ActingSecDef that’ll keep them in the F-35 program. #WashingtonDC values #Ankara as a #NATO ally. I don’t see why we can’t beat #Russia’s offer.
… it’s also important #Turkey fully comprehend that its defense acquisitions from #Russia differ from #India’s & #Qatar’s. #Ankara is a @NATO ally bound by Article V of the #NATO charter, an agreement that serves as the bedrock of #Europe’s security. US response will differ.
