The Pentagon does not expect changes in the military relations between the United States of America and Turkey after US President Joe Biden announced the recognition of the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman Empire. This was announced by Pentagon spokesman John Kirby.
“We do not expect any changes in military relations with Turkey. Turkey is [наш] NATO ally. We do not expect that this statement by the president, made by him over the weekend, will somehow affect them, “he said.
A spokesman for the US Department of Defense, on the contrary, expressed the hope that US-Turkish ties in the military sphere will only grow stronger.
Earlier it was reported that Turkey planned to freeze the defense pact with the United States because of the recognition of the genocide.
