Modi, Erdogan talk S-400 air defence deal, USA sanctions

Under possible USA sanctions, Turkey could face expulsion from the F-35 programme, a move Erdogan has dismissed.

The White House said Trump "expressed concern" over the S-400 deal and "encouraged Turkey to work with the United States on defence cooperation in a way that strengthens the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance", while the Turkish presidency said Trump had voiced a desire to resolve the dispute without harming bilateral ties.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he was confident Saturday there would be no sanctions against Turkey over a controversial Russian missile deal following reassurances from United States leader Donald Trump at a meeting between the two leaders.

The US is exploring various options to resolve the ongoing dispute with Ankara over its decision to purchase Russian S-400 systems, Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka.

Trump said Erdogan should not be blamed for Obama's failure.

"We are looking at different solutions", Trump told the press, admitting that the S-400 deal is a "problem" for the US.

"Our related institutions have stated that the delivery would start within the first half of the month of July", Erdogan said.

According to BitzArena , French minister Bruno Le Maire said that it is "impossible" for Libra to become a sovereign currency. The new cryptocurrency is developed collaboration with top companies such as Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, eBay, Lyft and, Uber.

To discourage Ankara from entering the deal, Washington suspended a joint F-35 fighter jet program and threatened Turkey with further economic sanctions. "These are not impressions I got from the talks I have had with Mr. Trump until now". "We're going to be much bigger".

Meeting President Vladimir Putin, Erdogan said the deal with Russian Federation was "of prime importance" to Turkey.

Even minor USA sanctions could prompt another sharp sell-off in the Turkish lira. So when he bought the other ones - the S-200s or 400s - when he bought them, he wanted to do this (buy the Patriot missiles), but he wasn't allowed by the Obama administration to buy them until after he made a deal to buy other missiles.

But the two leaders said they were committed to increasing bilateral trade.

But he added that Turkey "has been a friend of ours..." The US and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members fear Russian Federation could spy on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation aircraft through the S-400 system.

Before leaving to Japan for a G20 summit, Erdogan warned Washington against imposing sanctions on a fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally.
