Turkey announced the beginning of the purchase of F-16 aircraft from the United States

Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar spoke about the beginning of the procedure for purchasing F-16 fighters from the United States, Anadolu reports.

According to him, technical work has begun on the acquisition of the F-16. Akar noted that “strengthening Turkey means strengthening NATO.”

Earlier it was reported that Turkey could purchase Russian fighters if the United States froze the sale of F-16s. According to the head of the country’s defense industry, Turkey will not be left without alternatives and will be able to find a way out.

Prior to that, Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the purchase of Russian S-400s made sense, despite the emerging problems in relations with the United States.
