Türkiye rejects U.S. proposal to send S-400 missiles to Ukraine

Türkiye has recently rejected the U.S. proposal to send its Russian-made S-400 air defense system to Ukraine.

Washington suggested Türkiye should hand over control of the S-400 system to the U.S. or another country.

According to reports, these proposals were unacceptable for Türkiye because they directly concerned Turkish sovereignty.

Tensions between the United States and Türkiye escalated when Ankara and Moscow struck the S-400 deal, as Washington claimed that the S-400 system would be incompatible with the NATO system and may expose its confidential military information to Russia.

Washington later halted the delivery of F-35 fighter jets to Türkiye and imposed sanctions on Türkiye for its purchase of a Russian-made system.
