Ankara’s planned purchase of the S-400 missile systems is increasing tensions between Turkey and the United States
Washington has threatened to impose economic sanctions against Turkey under CAATSA (Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act)
Erdogan: “If we can’t have the F-35 jets, we will be forced to satisfy our fighter jet needs somewhere else”
Is Turkey going too far with the S-400 deal?
Turkey faces removal from the F-35 program, forfeiture of 100 F-35 jets & imposition of US sanctions as well as potential blowback from NATO

He added that the payments for the Russian air-defence systems will go ahead as required by the contract with Moscow
The time for decisions is now

The United States and other NATO allies who own F-35 fighter jets fear the radar on the Russian S-400 missile system will learn how to spot and track the F-35
