TURKEY Says Biased And Unjustified US Sanctions Will Not Impact T129 Attack Helicopter Deal With Iron Brother PAKISTAN:
TURKEY has said that the recent biased US Sanctions against Ankara will not impact the ongoing Defense Projects of TURKEY, including T-129 Helicopter Deal with Iron Brother PAKISTAN, but it could affect the other Defense deals with Islamabad, including the Hurjet Aircraft projects.
These revelations were revealed by the TURKEY’s Top Defense Industry Official, Ismail Demi, who is also the Head of TURKEY’s Defense Industries Presidency (SSB).
Ismail Demir made it categorically clear that despite the new biased US sanctions, the Defense Industry of TURKEY will continue to grow in future as well like the past.
“We expect this [sanctions] not to affect our relationships too much,” the Head of TURKEY’s Defense Industries Presidency (SSB) Ismail Demir told reporters after taken the TURKISH Parliament into confidence.
The United States on Monday imposed biased and unjustified sanctions on TURKEY over its purchase of Next Generation S-400 Long Range Air Defense System from Russia, who is the Strategic Ally of both Iron Brothers PAKISTAN and TURKEY.
The United States Government imposed sanctions on Ankara under Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), specifically targeting the TURKISH Defense Industries Presidency (SSB), including Head of TURKEY SSB Ismail Demir and other three senior officials related to TURKISH Defense Industry.
“The development of the domestic industry will continue, perhaps even faster. In a sense, this [sanctions] will serve as a flare and a warning,” Ismail Demir said.
“Starting on January 20, the incoming US President Joe Biden administration may also bring changes in policy – positive or negative – and the US sanctions could also trigger sanctions from the EU,” the Head of TURKEY’s Defense Industries Presidency (SSB) Ismail Demir told reporters.
The Head of TURKEY’s Defense Industries Presidency (SSB) Ismail Demir told reporters that the sanctions will not impact the ongoing Defense deals of TURKEY, including T-129 Atak Helicopters, but it might affect the future defense deals of Ankara with Islamabad, including the Hurjet Aircraft Projects.
“The sanctions will slow down TURKISH Defense projects related to the US for a short period, but the TURKISH Defense industry would take advantage of this process and manage to take over production of all critical parts in the long term,” Ismail Demir added in the statement.
The Sanctions under CAATSAA Act will come in to effect on January 20 and these sanctions may lead to trigger the certain EU sanctions as well.
It is pertinent to mention that TURKEY has signed a contract with its Ally, Russia for the procurement of next Generation Long Range Air Defense System S-400. The United States on the other hand, opposed the move exclude PAKISTAN’s Iron Brother TURKEY from the F-35 Program, which some Top Defense Analysts analysts are termed it as a flying lemon.
TURKEY is an important Brother, Ally and Strategic Defense Partner of PAKISTAN and both the ISLAMIC COUNTRIES shares decades long relations based on history, culture and Defense Ties.
