Washington repeatedly warned that it will cut off Turkey’s purchase of F-35 fighters if Ankara goes ahead with the delivery of the S-400s.

Erdogan recalled that Ankara wanted to buy US Patriot systems during the term of former US President Barack Obama but Washington declined Ankara’s demand at the time.

The Turkish President said that when he reminded his US counterpart about this case, Trump told him that “you are right” on the dispute over the purchase of S-400 systems.
