    Im from turkey and i think US is not friend of turkey

    No that wont happen, Erdogun is playing a double game here, right now he's playing of both sides to get what he wants, but he wont go so far as to leave NATO because that prevents other NATO members from confronting him, after all NATO needs to maintain the delusion that they're some sort of unified force, in short, if the U.S were to attack Turkey then NATO would cease to exist.

    İf turkey out nato there will be only usa left
    And i think we out nato and play with russia because turkey only trust russia we see all eu and nato countrys after the coup attempt and russia
    well russia and turkey need eacother than the other countrys in eu we are neighbours we are going to russia to study or visit they come to turkey and we need eachother and peace for russia and turkey pirat

    Turkey trust no one not even itself, and Russia doesn't need Turkey, they just want relations good if/when possible.

    Good relations between Russia and Turkey is good for Russia and good for Turkey.

    Good relations with the US is usually only good for the US first and sometimes good for those that give up everything to be friends with the US.

    Weak Turkey is good for Russia, because when Turkey can they begin to look forward with expansive ambitions.

    Take into account the intention with the Turkic union. It is to expand their own military material,... their own influence.

    Russia 'May Consider' Giving Air Defense Systems to Turkey


    The Kremlin has said Friday it "may consider" supplying Turkey with air defense systems in a further warming of ties after a feud over the downing of a Russian jet last year.

    President Vladimir Putin and Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan held talks in Istanbul on Monday in which the prospect of supplying Ankara with air defence systems was brought up, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies; AFP reported.

    "Various missile defence systems were mentioned and if the Turkish side so desires, Russia may consider the possibility of supplying Turkey in various ways," Peskov was quoted as saying.

    Turkey's private NTV channel, citing Turkish foreign ministry sources, said earlier this week that Ankara was ready to accept an offer from Russia for a Turkish tender to build long-range air defence systems.

    Turkish officials, contacted by AFP, said they had no information about any development.

    Putin's visit to Turkey -- his first since the November 2015 downing of a Russian war plane by Ankara sparked the worst dispute between the countries since the Cold War -- saw each side pledge to step up cooperation in all areas including defence and technology.

    The Kremlin strongman on Monday hinted that concrete measures would be taken to reinforce defence ties with Ankara.

    "We are ready to continue this (military-technical) cooperation and boost it with serious projects of mutual interest," Putin said.

    "Proposals from both sides are being studied, and I am certain they have all the grounds to be carried out."


    Ankara last year cancelled a preliminary deal on air defence systems with China amid concerns from its NATO partners.
    At the time, Turkish officials said Ankara had instead an ambitious plan to build a Turkish-made missile defence system.

    Despite the warming ties, Moscow and Ankara remain far apart on the conflict in Syria, with Russia supporting leader Bashar al-Assad and Turkey wanting him out.

    Turkey left US influence in the 2000s. All is left to kick American''s out of the İncirlik airbase, shut off kürecik radar base, give their Nukes back.

    U.S. Senator Says Turkey May Face Sanctions Over Weapons Deal With Russia



    September 15, 2017 10:09 GMT  

    A leading Democrat on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations committee says Turkey’s recent purchase of antiaircraft missile systems from Russia may have violated a U.S. law that requires automatic sanctions to be imposed against Ankara.

    Senator Ben Cardin issued the warning on September 14 in a letter to the administration of President Donald Trump.

    The letter says Ankara’s purchase of Russian S-400 surface-to-air missiles, which was finalized on September 12, violates U.S. congressional sanctions against Russia that were signed into law in August.


    Cardin wrote: “As a U.S. ally, it is unfortunate that Turkey has appeared to align itself with Moscow during this critical time.”

    Perhaps Turkey should reply that if the US had a missile that was more capable than the S-400 or at least as cheap they might have considered buying it.

    If Russia gives to Turkey the S-400, the following day is in the hand of the US.

    The S-400 Turkey will get will tell them nothing about the S-400 in Russian service.

    Might give them a hint about the Chinese or Indian systems but will also reveal the secrets of the new Turkish system... which is why I suspect they wont give away too much... especially when the US applies sanctions to Turkey for buying it...

    Would be funny if Erdogan kicks the US nukes out of turkey in response to US sanctions.... Smile

    Turkey may close Incirlik Air Base for US

    9 October 2017 14:49 (UTC+04:00)


    Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 9

    By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:

    Turkey may close the Incirlik Air Base for the US Air Force, Turkish media outlets reported Oct. 9.

    The air base may be closed because on Oct. 8, the US suspended issuance of non-immigrant visas to Turkish citizens, according to the report.

    Non-immigrant visas are issued to all those travelling to the US for tourism, medical treatment, business, temporary work or study. Immigrant visa services are only for those seeking to live in the US permanently.

    The US suspended issuance of non-immigrant visas to Turkish citizens due to the arrest of an employee of the US Consulate General in Istanbul, the report said.

    The Turkish authorities, commenting on the arrest of the employee, noted that he had links with the movement of Fethullah Gulen, who is accused of being involved in a military coup attempt in Turkey in 2016.

    Turkey, in turn, also suspended the issuance of visas to US citizens.
