The United States stopped supplying Turkey with equipment related to F-35 fighters in connection with the purchase of Ankara S-400. It is reported Reuters with reference to sources.
“The US officials told their Turkish counterparts that they will not receive further supplies of equipment related to the F-35, necessary to prepare for the arrival of the aircraft”, the text says.
The sources stated that the shipment of training equipment and all subsequent deliveries of materials related to the F-35 had been cancelled.
