Moscow in talks with Ankara for possible Russian SU-35 jets sale: report

0

Russia and Turkey are holding talks about the possible sale of Russian-made Sukhoi SU-35 fighter jets to Turkey, but it is too early to talk about a concrete deal, the RIA news agency cited a senior Russian official as saying on Friday, according to Reuters.

Turkey has been at odds with the United States over its purchase of the Russian S-400 missile system, which Washington says is not compatible with NATO defenses and poses a threat to Lockheed Martin’s F-35 stealth fighter jets.

The United States has also expelled Turkey from the F-35 program, but Ankara has so far dismissed the warnings.
