AHEPA Applauds Congress for Stymying F-35 Sales to Turkey

The Order of AHEPA lauded the approval by the U.S. Congress of a funding bill that includes boosting Greek army education and training and raises obstacles in the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Turkey.

“We applaud Congress for passage of a bipartisan, comprehensive FY2019 funding bill that bolsters support for US-Greece relations with a $1 million appropriation for Greece’s International Military Education and Training program; a program that advances the professional military education of the Greek Armed Forces.

The statement noted, “The bill contains provisions and report language that address: Turkey’s purchase of Russia’s S-400 missile defense system, the transfer of the F-35 jet fighters to Turkey, and the ‘wrongful or unlawful prolonged detention’ of American citizens and locally-employed State Department or USAID staff in Turkey,” AHEPA Supreme President George Loucas noted, glad Turkey has been put off.
