Turkish Minister of Foreign affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said Turkey may buy Patriot air defence systems. Speaking to German daily Die Zeit, Minister Çavuşoğlu said, “Due to US Congress , We needed it urgently because we did not have an air defence system. we had difficulty purchasing even simple rifles from the US because of concerns in the US Congress. We had to buy from somewhere. If the US government can guarantee that Congress will allow it, we will buy their Patriot systems.”
