USA general says that Turkey purchasing the S-400 could harm North Atlantic Treaty Organisation

Держдепартамент США хоче переконати Туреччину відмовитись від російських ракет – новини

This comes after concenrs from the U.S. and its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies regarding Turkey's push towards to Kremlin after Russian Federation agreed to the sale of its state-of-the-art S-400 air defence system.

The United States is reportedly offering to sell Raytheon-built Patriot missile defense system to Turkey as an alternative to block potential sale of Russian-built S-400s agreed upon by Ankara. "In the case of Turkey, that is Patriots".

Turkey signed an agreement with Russian Federation last December to buy the S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries as part of Ankara's plans to boost its defense capabilities amid threats from PKK and Daesh terrorists at home and conflicts across its borders in Syria and Iraq.

Some lawmakers want to prevent Ankara from taking delivery of the 100 advanced US-made F-35 Lightning II fifth-generation fighter jets it ordered.

Lockheed Martin Corp, which makes the interceptors for the Patriot system, said one approach could be to offer Turkey an open architecture system like the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) it developed with European missile maker MBDA, which would allow Turkey to integrate its own missiles.

This was reported by the Sabah newspaper referring to US Assistant Secretary of State for Military-Political Affairs Tina Kaidanov.

She said Washington wants to ensure that systems acquired by USA allies "remain supportive of the strategic relationship between us and our allies".

He noted that purchase of s-400 will not be good for the Alliance.

USA officials and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation have repeatedly warned Ankara that the Russian missile system could not be integrated into the system of defensive Alliance.

The S-400 system, whose full name is the Triumf Mobile Multiple Anti-Aircraft Missile System (AAMS), is an advanced Russian missile system created to detect, track, and destroy planes, drones, or missiles as far as 402 kilometers away.

USA officials attended the Farnborough Air Show in the U.K. Monday to showcase the system.

If Ankara walks away from its Russian purchase and the US Senate later rejects a Patriot deal, tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies will increase dramatically, Unluhisarcikli said.

"The S-400 might be the best air defense system, but its effectiveness would be hampered without integration".
