 The United States is brewing a moratorium on arms sales to Turkey.


On August 23, 2017, visiting foreign minister of Turkey, Baghdad, spoke at a news conference in Baghdad. (Xinhua News Community, Khalil Dawud) Xinhua news agency, Beijing, May 7, Turkey foreign minister Mevrut Cavus Lu 6, said that if the United States issued a law to stop the sale of weapons and equipment on the soil, the Turkish side will fight back. He also responded to the North Atlantic Treaty Organizations concerns about the approaching between Turkey and Russia, saying that Turkish Russia relations and mutual defense cooperation are not alternative options for relations between Turkey and the western countries. Absolute counterattack The house of representatives of the United States Congress released the details of the 2019 annual defense authorization bill in fiscal year 4, adding the contents of the sale of weapons and equipment to Turkey. According to the bill, the US Department of defense needs to submit a report on US soil relations to the Congress. Before the completion of the report, the US suspended its arms sales to the earth. Turkey intends to buy more than 100 F-35 fighters from the United States, which is expected to receive the first fighter this year. In addition, the Turkish side is still discussing with the us about the purchase of Patriot air defense missiles. In view of the content of the US bill, the foreign minister of Turkey, qurash oru, received a tough response to the CNN Turkish channel for 6 days, and decided that the act was wrong, illogical and inconsistent with NATO allies. If the United States impose sanctions on us or take such a move, the earth will definitely fight back, he said. What needs to be done is that the US must give up it. The attempted military coup in Turkey in July 2016 brought discord with the relations between the two countries. 3 U.S. senators put forward a bill on 26 last month to prevent the us from delivering F-35 aircraft to Turkey and limiting the transfer of related technologies, worrying that it could harm American interests. Batches of manipulation The US side is suspending the sale of arms to the mainland. The rising bilateral relations between Turkey and Russia seem to be one of the delicate factors. Turkey and Russia signed a loan agreement on the purchase of the S-400 air defense missile system at the end of last year. According to the agreement, Russia will sell 4 sets of S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey. Because the system can not be compatible with NATO air defense system, the purchasing intentions of the earth are opposed by western countries such as the United States. According to earthwork, it had sought to buy missile defense system from NATO, but the latter forced it to turn to Russia without compromise. Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Recep Tayyi Erdogan of Turkey watched the start of the construction of the Turkeys first nuclear power plant at the initial nuclear power plant in early April. In view of the concerns of western countries on the approaching of Russia and Russia, the 6 day of the interview said that the relationship between Russia and Russia and the agreement on arms sales were not alternative options between Turkey and the western countries. He also accused the US of trying to manipulate Turkey. Turkey is not a dictated country, he said. It is an independent country. It is not right attitude or agreement that we should talk to such a country in a commanding way and stipulate what it can buy and not buy. Mike Pompeio, the new US Secretary of state, told S-400 last month that the US side is deeply concerned about the decision of the Turkish side to purchase the Russian made air defense missile system. He has confirmed that he will visit the United States next week and interview with Pompeio 6 days ago.
