President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was showcased Russia's fifth-generation Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter jet at the MAKS 2019 International Aviation and Space Salon in the Moscow region on Tuesday.
Erdoğan, accompanied by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov, inspected the aircraft ranked among the best in the world.
Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov had said that the Su-57 and the Su-35 will be showcased to the Turkish president during the event, according to remarks carried by Russian news agency Interfax. According to the Russian official, prospects of the fighter sales to Turkey depend on the show.
In case Turkey doesn't get the F-35 jets, Turkish officials insisted the country would meet its needs from other sources until it produces its own.
Russia's most advanced fighter, which has undergone testing in Syria, is a direct competitor to the multi-role F-35 jet.
