Menendez: No “victory” for Turkey for the F-16s

In a tweet he made on his account, he clarified that he has no intention of approving the sale of F-16s to Turkey.

Determined not to give in to any pressure to sell F-16s to Turkey is US Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, arguing that the US defense budget does not lend itself to celebrations on Turkey’s part.

Specifically, in a tweet he made on his account, he made it clear that the US defense budget for 2023 (NDAA) does not constitute a victory for Turkey, underlining that he has no intention of approving the sale of F-16s to Turkey.

Specifically, he wrote on Twitter:

“Contrary to some claims, the #NDAA is not a victory for #Turkey. This is just one of many tools available to us in the Senate to address gun sales. I’ll say it again. As #SFRC Chairman, I will NOT approve F-16s for Turkey until Erdogan stops his abuses throughout the region.…”
