Turkey says U.S. tone and approach not befitting partnership spirit: defense ministry 2

Earlier this month, U.S. acting Secretary of Defence Pat Shanahan sent his Turkish counterpart a letter warning that Ankara would be pulled out of the F-35 jet program unless it changes course from its plans to install the defenses.

Turkey also expressed the importance to continue working on finding a solution to problems with dialogue, the defense ministry said in a statement on its website.
