Turkey Pleads For US To Rethink F-35 Program Suspension Before Biden Enters White House

Despite Turkey facing immense Washington pressures over its acquirement and recent successful testing of the S-400 anti-air defense system from Russia, including its prior suspended participation in the F-35 program, President Trump has stopped short of allowing sanctions which have been advocated by Congressional hawks.
Critics of the White House have said it’s due to Trump’s “special relationship” with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan; however, with Joe Biden expected to enter the White House in January, Ankara is on edge given Biden’s past charged rhetoric on Turkey.
For this reason Turkey is once again urging the US to reconsider, as Reuters reports “Turkey is ready to discuss U.S. concerns about the technical compatibility of Russian S-400 defenses and U.S.-made F-35 jets, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said Thursday, repeating Ankara’s proposal for a joint working group with Washington on the issue.”
