Will Turkey cancel the purchase of S-400?

Recep Tayyip Erdogan now faces a choice that will have major consequences for both Turkey’s foreign relations and its economy.


He can step back from buying a Russian missile defense system, the S-400, in favor of buying American weapons systems, or reject U.S. demands and forgo partaking in the F-35 joint strike fighter program, essentially choosing Moscow over Washington.


The United States has halted delivery of equipment related to the stealthy F-35 fighter aircraft to Turkey, marking the first concrete U.S. step to block delivery of the jet to the NATO ally in light of Ankara’s planned purchase of a Russian missile defense system.
