Turkey says US sanctions will not impact helicopter deal with Pakistan

ANKARA/ ISTANBUL:
Turkey’s top defence industry official said on Tuesday any US sanctions against Ankara would not affect the country’s several existing projects, including a helicopter deal with Pakistan, but could impact other deals with Islamabad such as Pakistan Atak helicopter and Hurjet aircraft projects.
Ismail Demir, the head of Turkey’s Defence Industries Presidency (SSB) said that despite new US sanctions, the defence industry would continue to move forward. “We expect this [sanctions] not to affect our relationships too much,” told reporters after speaking to parliament.
The US on Monday imposed sanctions on Turkey over its purchase of the Russian S-400 missile defence system. The sanctions, coming under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), target the SSB, including Demir, and three other officials.
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, Demir said, speaking a day after the US announcement.
The SSB chief underlined that the sanctions should not affect existing projects, such as the T70 helicopter, but added that the Pakistan Atak helicopter and Hurjet aircraft projects would probably be affected.
The sanctions will slow down Turkish defence projects related to the US for a short period, but the Turkish defence industry would take advantage of this process and manage to take over production of all critical parts in the long term, he stressed.
“The development of the domestic industry will continue, perhaps even faster. In a sense, this [sanctions] will serve as a flare and a warning,” he said, underlining Turkey’s nearly 70-year NATO membership and Ankara’s relations with fellow members and the US in several areas.
In April 2017, when its protracted efforts to buy an air defense system from the US proved fruitless, Turkey signed a contract with Russia to acquire the S-400 shield. The US opposed their deployment, claiming they would expose next-generation F-35 jets to possible Russian subterfuge.

The issue here was that Turkey purchased and deployed a Russian air defense system despite sanctions placed on Russia but India has yet to be sanctioned for its purchases of the S-400 nor has Greece, another NATO member, for its purchase and deployment of the S-300.

Furthermore the S-300V4, which the Greeks have shown an indication they'll upgrade to meaning future purchases, is an advanced system and comparable to the S-400 (aka S-300PMU-3).

NATO member US refused to meet its obligation of the NATO treaty and supply a fellow NATO member Turkey the air defense systems that were critical to their nations security and Trump confirmed this had been ongoing since Obama.

I agree with Irfan he is NOT going to remove sanctions immediately and he won't remove them completely at most he'll go as far as Obama did.

Biden is very pro-Israel I would say even more than Obama is but he's also a lot more practical than Obama was.

I'm also concerned about an Iran with nuclear weapons but I personally don't think Iran even wants them because they, like many other nations, aren't capable of using them as credible deterrents in fact I'd say very few nations outside of Pakistan, India, China and the US are. When you use nukes you're risking the deaths of maybe tens of millions of your own people and a nation like Iran doesn't have the freshwater resources, the arable land, myriad of mineral deposits nor population to survive nuclear counterstrikes.

The only way a less populated state could field nukes is to deploy A LOT of nukes like the Russians did so even against a larger aggressor it promises complete eradication of the others civilization.

Biden isn't pro-Pakistan either like people might think he's just more practical than Obama was.

I think we can negotiate with him on a withdrawal from Afghanistan alongside their re-entry into the JCPOA without any pre-conditions in exchange for removing threats of sanctions on the Iran-Pakistan pipeline and negotiate a barter trade deal with Iran for oil and gas. We could also assist them in their rapprochement of Turkey which would be hugely beneficial for the both of us.

The JCPOA that Obama negotiated, considering Obama is a close friend of Biden, isn't something he's likely to alter and would be very open to going back to the original 2015 agreement.

The authors basically blame Erdogan for the whole mess. He thought he could US to his will, that he could have his cake and eat it too.

Don't expect the problem to get better with Biden. Erdogan didn't have good relations with Obama and I doubt it will be any better under Biden.
