Turkey will never bow to U.S. sanctions over its agreement to purchase Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile defense systems, Vice President Fuat Oktay said on Sunday regarding a deal that has strained ties between the NATO allies.

土耳其此前同意购买俄罗斯S-400地对空导弹防御系统,这项协议会导致北约(NATO)盟国关系紧张。周日(2019.05.05)土耳其副总统奥克塔伊(Fuat Oktay)表示,土耳其永远不会屈服于美国的制裁。

Washington says the systems are not compatible with NATO equipment and may compromise its Lockheed Martin F-35 fighter jets. It has warned of possible U.S. sanctions if Ankara pushes on with the Russian deal.

美国方面表示,S-400系统与北约的设备不兼容,可能危及美国洛克希德马丁公司的F-35战斗机。美国已经发出警告,如果土耳其继续推进与俄罗斯的协议,美国可能会对土耳其实施制裁。



The United States has also offered to sell Turkey its rival Raytheon Co. Patriot defense systems, which Turkey's Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said Ankara was still uating.

美国还提出向土耳其出售雷神公司的爱国者防御系统。土耳其国防部长阿卡尔(Hulusi Akar)说,安卡拉方面仍在评估该系统。

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who will visit Turkey next week, told Turkey's state-run Anadolu news agency on Sunday that decisions about defense procurement were up to individual countries.

北约秘书长斯托尔滕贝格(Jens Stoltenberg)将于下周访问土耳其。他周日对土耳其国营的阿纳多卢通讯社(Anadolu news agency)表示,北约的成员国有权决定自己的国防采购。

"The issue of procuring military materiel is a national decision for countries, but the ability of allied armies to work together is a fundamental issue for NATO to run its operations and missions," Stoltenberg was quoted as saying.

报道引用斯托尔滕贝格的话说:“虽然北约各个国家有权决定自己国家的国防采购,但盟国军队的合作协调能力,对于北约执行行动和任务来说至关重要。”



(译者注:土耳其目前有8家企业参与到F-35生产计划中,主要是提供部分机身零部件、F-35B的升力发动机零部件和航电设备,迄今为止,已经向洛马公司交付了超过7亿美元的订单)。

Turkey has said it expected U.S. President Donald Trump to use a waiver to protect it against penalties over the S-400s, after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Ankara could face retribution for the deal under the U.S. Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).

此前,美国国务卿蓬佩奥说,根据美国通过《制裁法案》(CAATSA)打击美国的对手,安卡拉方面可能会因购买S-400的协议而面临报复。土耳其表示,预计美国总统特朗普将利用豁免令保护土耳其免受惩罚。
