The United States removed Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet programme on 17 July
19 July 2019 Current Affairs: The United States removed Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet programme on 17 July. It is a move that had been long threatened and expected after Ankara began accepting delivery of an advanced Russian missile defence system. 
Turkey said that the move made by the US will affect relations between the two countries.
The supply chain for the F-35 would cost the US between $500m and $600m in non-recurring engineering costs. Turkey makes more than 900 parts of the F-35 adding the supply chain would transition from Turkish to mainly US factories as Turkish suppliers are removed.

Tie established between Turkey and Russia:
The first parts of the S-400 air defence system were flown to the Murted military airbase northwest of Ankara, Turkey on 19 July. This seals the Turkey's deal with Russia.
