The United States will set aside $440 million to buy back all F-35 stealth fighter jets ordered by NATO ally Turkey, Dünya newspaper reported, citing the U.S. draft budget for 2020.

U.S. legislators will create a special fund in the budget to purchase the aircraft, which will be transferred to the U.S. military, Dünya said on Tuesday.

Turkey has been suspended from a program for the production and purchase of the F-35s after it took delivery of S-400 air defence missiles from Russia earlier this year. Turkey still hopes to buy the aircraft, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said in an interview with state-run Anadolu news agency on Monday.

  1. I think Turkey dodged a bullet not getting these planes, they are riddled with serious production and design issues. The Japanese government want to produce in Japan as they don’t trust production. I hope Greece does not get saddled with any of these as a result (unless USA pays them to have them)
