Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the United States is delaying the delivery of F-16 fighter jets to the Turkish Air Force.

This issue is still on the table, Erdogan explained at a press conference before leaving for the NATO summit in Madrid.

The purchase of F-16s for Turkish military aviation continues to be discussed in the US Congress - the amount of the application is $ 400 million. The delay in the delivery of fighters is due to Erdogan's refusal to terminate the contract with Russia for the supply of S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.
