Ankara: The language of the threat is futile in our relations with the US

A spokesman for the Turkish presidency, Ibrahim Kalın, said that Ankara would not allow questioning its position within NATO in the light of the S-400 and F-35 fighter jets issues, adding that the language of the threat is futile.

"We reject statements that question Ankara's status within NATO, and the status of a member of the alliance can not be determined by one country, but by all member states,” he told the Anatolia news agency.

"We reject statements that question our position within NATO. We are not an observer country in NATO, but we are a member like all other members, and we have full authority to make decisions within the structure of the alliance, and therefore will not allow to question the place of Turkey.” He said.

 He stressed that the purchase of "S-400 system" from Moscow is not a step that is hostile to Washington, but Ankara's decision to develop its defense potential, indicating that Turkey has demanded the acquisition of "Patriot system" from the United States also, but Turkey did not get a positive response from Washington.

He stressed that Ankara's relations with Russia are not a substitute for its counterparts with the United States and the European Union countries, and their relations with these countries are not a substitute for their relations with Russia.

He added that the Turkish foreign policy perspective on events and matters is based on openness, increasing the alternatives and developing more relations with different countries.
