Speaking at a U.S. -Turkey conference in Washington amid rising tensions between the two North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over Ankara's plan to buy the Russian S-400 missile system, Akar adopted a relatively conciliatory tone and urged to resolve issues via dialogue.

Last week, Turkey´s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the delivery of the S-400 system could be earlier than initially planned, according to the Hurriyet daily.

"This procurement decision does not signify a change in Turkey's course".

Turkey's relationship with the US needs to be based on trust, common values, and shared interests, Turkish presidential spokesman said Monday.

He addressed some positives between the two countries, such as U.S. President Donald Trump's call to increase the trade volume to $75 billion, but he also discussed an issue that has caused tension - the Turkish procurement of the Russian S-400 missile defense system.

Turning to a safe zone being mulled for northeastern Syria, Kalın said the US and Turkey "are making progress", noting "positive signals" being received from Washington on the matter, but stressed the USA needs to end its support to the YPG, the Syrian affiliate of the PKK- a designated terror group in the USA and Turkey.

Look at how much goodwill Microsoft accrued just by adding compatibility for Xbox 360 and original Xbox games to the One. Despite this, developers are already working on PS5 games, so a possible 2020 release could potentially be in the cards.


In early April, the United States halted delivery of equipment related to the stealthy F-35 fighter aircraft to Turkey, marking the first concrete USA step to potentially blocking the delivery of the jet to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally.

"Earlier, Erdogan said that although the delivery of the S-400s was scheduled for July", it may be done earlier". However, as in the case of the S-400, Turkey may be interested not only in aircrafts, but also in their manufacturing technologies, which can accelerate the development of the aircraft industry of the Turkish military-industrial complex (MIC).

"We firmly believe that linking the S-400 to the F-35 project is unfortunate". Patriot missile system rather than the S-400s from Moscow, arguing that the Russian system would be incompatible with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems and expose the F-35 to possible Russian subterfuge.

He noted that despite appeals from the US, Turkey will not abandon the purchase of the S-400.

"Recently we received the restated offer for the Patriots".
