Turkey rejected USs ultimatum to back down on Russian missile deal
14 June 2019 Current Affairs: Turkey announced that it will not back down from its decision to buy Russian S-400 missile defense systems despite U.S.'s ultimatum. This has created tension between Ankara and Washington, the NATO allies.
The S-400s are not compatible with NATO’s defense systems. US said it would compromise its F-35s, which Turkey also plans to buy. Turkey has proposed that the allies form a working group to asses the impact of the S-400s, but has yet to receive a response from the United States.

US' urge:
U.S. urged Turkey to abandon its purchase of a Russian missile defence system. If Turkey does not end the deal, U.S. said that it would expel the Turkish pilots training on the F-35 fighter jet programme.
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu suggested an offer to set up a joint working group to resolve U.S. concerns.
