Ankara makes offer to Washington to resolve Russian S-400 dispute

Although Turkey is expected to activate its Russian-made S-400 missile defense system in April, the issue appears off the agenda of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP).

Turkey’s Foreign Minister Mevlut Çavusoglu recently announced that Turkey was still willing to purchase US-made Patriot long-range air defense missiles. Speaking at a virtual Atlantic Council event on Tuesday, he also repeated his offer to the US to establish a technical working group, including NATO, to resolve the dispute over Ankara’s purchase of the S-400.

Ties between the two NATO allies deteriorated last year over Turkey’s acquisition of the Russian system, which saw Washington remove Turkey from its Lockheed Martin F-35 jet program in July.
