Turkey is open to Washington's Patriot missile proposal if it meets its expectations, senior adviser to Turkey's president Gülnur Aybet said, stressing that the U.S. should not see this as Ankara giving up the S-400 air defense system it has purchased from Russia.
Aybet's remarks came on the sidelines of a panel, "Turkey's Perspective on Regional Defense, Energy and Economy," in Washington in partnership with the Turkish Heritage Organization (THO) and World Affairs Councils of America (WACA).
The air defense system gap in Turkey's security polices has long been discussed as an important issue, she said in her address, recalling that Turkey held talks with other countries, especially the U.S., before it came to an agreement with Russia to purchase the S-400 air missile defense system.
