  • Pentagone : La Turquie recevra des avions F-35 jeudi

    Pentagone : La Turquie recevra des avions F-35 jeudi

    Le porte-parole du Pentagone, Mike Andrews, a déclaré que la cérémonie d’inauguration se tiendra au Fort de Lockheed au Texas, comme prévu le 21 juin. Les Etats-Unis s’apprêtent à livrer le premier lot de deux avions de chasse F-35 à la Turquie lors d’une cérémonie qui se tiendra jeudi au Texas, malgré l’adoption par le Sénat d’un projet de loi bloquant la livraison, a annoncé mercredi le Pentagone. Dans son communiqué, le porte-parole du Pentagone, Mike Andrews, a annoncé que la cérémonie d’inauguration se déroulerait au Fort Lockheed, au Texas, le 21 juin, en précisant que les deux avions de combat F-35 seraient transférés à Luke Airforce Base, en Arizona où des pilotes turcs devraient recevoir une formation sur le pilotage des jets tout au long de 2019. Au total, 12 pays ont participé au programme de fabrication de F-35. Parmi les neuf pays qui ont participé au développement conjoint de l’avion de combat, tous les États ont déjà commencé à recevoir les avions à réaction F-35 à l’exception de la Turquie, du Canada et du Danemark. Le Sénat américain a adopté lundi dernier un projet de loi sur la politique de défense d’un montant de 716 milliards de dollars, bloquant ainsi la livraison d’avions de combat interarmées F-35 à la Turquie. Le projet de loi affirmait que l’achat du système de missiles S-400 en provenance de Russie augmentait les tensions et les risques pour l’alliance de l’OTAN. Il exige également la libération du pasteur américain Andrew Brunson, qui fait face à des accusations de terrorisme en Turquie. Avant de pouvoir être légiféré, le projet de loi doit être concilié avec celui déjà adopté par la Chambre des représentants. Cette mesure de compromis doit ensuite être adoptée par les deux chambres et signée par Trump. https://www.redaction.media/articles/pentagone-turquie-recevra-avions-f-35-jeudi/
