Erdogan says no indication from Trump of US sanctions over S-400 deal Jun 27, 2019 0 978 12345 ReutersANKARATurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday he had not seen indications in his talks with President Donald Trump that the United States will impose sanctions on Ankara over its purchase of Russian S-400 missile defence systems.The US has warned that it would impose sanctions on Turkey if it pressed ahead with the S-400 deal, but Ankara has said it would not back down and has so far dismissed the warnings, as relations between the NATO allies strained.Speaking to reporters in Ankara before departing for the G20 summit in Japan, Erdogan said he would again discuss the issue with Trump in bilateral talks on the sidelines of the summit. The United States and turkey appear to make no progress during talks at NATO headquarters on Wednesday toward resolving a major dispute over Ankara’s plans to acquire a Russian air defense system, just ahead of its expected July delivery.The United States says turkey’s acquisition of Russia’s S-400 air defenses poses a threat to Lockheed Martin Corp’s F-35 stealthy fighters, which Turkey also planned to buy. Washington says Ankara cannot have both and has started the process of removing Turkey from the F-35 program, including halting training of Turkish pilots in the United States on the advanced, stealth aircraft.
