Erdogan: US rejecting F-35 stream arrangement with Turkey would be burglary

Ankara faces new strains in US relationship over up and coming conveyance of Russian S-400 rocket framework. 



Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said it would be "theft" for the United States to deny Turkey the F-35 warrior planes it has purchased, as per comments distributed in Turkish media.

"On the off chance that you have a client and that client is making installments predictably, in what manner can you not give that client their merchandise? The name of that would be burglary," the national Hurriyet paper cited Erdogan as saying on Thursday, as Turkey faces potential US endorses over its buy of the Russian S-400 rocket framework.

He said that Turkey had so far paid $1.4bn for the F-35s and that four planes had been given over, with Turkish pilots setting off to the US for preparing.

"We have made a consent to purchase 116 F-35s. We are not only a market, we are likewise joint makers. We produce a portion of the parts in Turkey," he included.
