During an upcoming summit between them in Glasgow, Erdogan and Biden discuss the F-35 fighter file

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he will meet with his US counterpart Joe Biden on the sidelines of the climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, scheduled for November 1, and that the F-35 aircraft file will be the most important item in the talks.

This came in statements he made to reporters on the plane during his return from Azerbaijan, which he visited on Tuesday.

The Turkish president added, “Of course, the file of the F-35 aircraft will be the most important item for us in this meeting. We have made a payment of one billion and 400 million dollars (in the framework of the production program).” He pointed out that there is a need to discuss the nature of the American plan to return this payment to Turkey.

Glasgow hosts the 26th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

On the subject of the ten ambassadors in Ankara, Erdogan said, “The step we have taken is not a show of force against anyone, but only means that ambassadors in Turkey cannot interfere in its internal affairs.”

He added that the ambassadors working in Turkey should know the consequences of matters well, and anyone who does not know this, we reminded him of Article 41 of the Vienna Convention.

Commenting on the US newspaper headlines in this context, the Turkish president said, “I am in an offensive position, and there is never in my dictionary the word retreat.”
