The US and Turkey may create a joint working group to discuss the situation with the Turkish decision to purchase the S-400 system from Russia.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that he came with this proposal during his recent meeting with US President Donald Trump at the White House.

Both sides describing the meeting as productive. However, at a joint news conference, Trump recalled the US concerns over this situation.

“Turkey’s acquisition of sophisticated Russian military weapons, such as the S-400, creates some very serious challenges for us,” Trump said standing alongside Erdogan. “Hopefully, we’ll be able to resolve that situation,” he added.

According to Erdogan, the proposed working gorpu should include representatives of the countires’ defense ministries as well as the press secretary and special adviser to the President of Turkey, Ibrahim Kalin and US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.

Erdogan described Washington’s demand to reject the S-400 as wrong and said that Turkey is ready to consider buying US-made Patriot missile systems. Nonetheless, he pointed out that the “diversification” of “defense resources” is in Turkey’s national interests and its sovereign right.

“I hope that we will get a positive result at the end of the work of [such a group],” the Turkish leader said, adding that he saw Trump’s “more positive attitude” and “more constructive approach” in the negotiations.

    Next might be Trump as refugee in a Turkish Jail, and Erdogan in an American one. I am a little worried for Putin. Solomons might cut him in 2.

    Let be honest, America are scared of any country/countries that have s400 system/s
    They are worst nightmare for America
    The system is super powerful and almost invincible
    If Syria would had this system, the war would not take place in Syria,
    The USA scumbags/war mongers would look at other countries to initiate a war/s
    In the end of the day USA dosent care about human life/rights,, they are greedy, no morals,no regards to human life as long they make money
    That includes big pharmaceutical companies, guns manufacturing companies,
    Lockheed Martin Corporation is an American global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company with worldwide interests

    If Erdogan refuse the offer of $100 billion, he should be offered $200 billion until he says yes. Erdogan will dismantle the S-400 smiling all over his face and send them back to Russia.
    Turkey would be happy :-D and the Turkish gate would be wide open…………………LOL.

    Erdogan and Trump dining at a posh Restaurant in Trump Tower.

    Trump: I am pleased you could join me for dinner and hope you enjoyed the cuisine. What do you think about the squid pro quo dish.

    Erdogan: well this squid pro quo dish is quite a bit more expensive then what was served to Zelensky, the jester and herald of Kolomoisky, Inperator and Pontifax Maximus of the Great Failed State of Ukraine. Anyway, we have a working group to look at it and I have to go…

    Trump interrupts: What! We still have desert, a beautiful delicious piece of chocolate cake… oh, and no, we are not bombing anyone, although I bet you’d like it if we bombed the Kurds wouldn’t ya.

    Erdogan: i prefer getting the satisfaction of bombing them myself. As for desert, thank you but I am in the mood for desert that is more of a Russian flavour.

    [Erdogan notices Trump’s face turn beet red in jealous rage, loving it, Erdogan continues]: so to fulfil my decadent desire, I am flying to Sochi to have dessert with Putin. I am sure you understand.

    Trump: No I don’t. Why I have never been so insulted since… an hour ago…

    Erdogan: Please do not take offence, none was intended [lie]. But you must understand that given demonstrated capabilities of the Patriot Movie Prop System, we need a system that actually works [painful truth]

    yeah donny the rump can wish for talks etc but he and the rest of the washington dc garbage fail to realize that from turkey’s point of view kurds are a no no no and there is no way that turkey or syria will allow a kurdish settlement within syria more or less on the turkish border. not gonna happen. and besides of the 40 million kurds in the borderareas about 60 70 % are found in turkey and that is why turkey has had soldiers en masse in the kurdish area since the beginning of time to prevent them from getting ideas in their heads.
