ANKARA: Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, U.S. President Donald Trump told Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan that he didn’t want any problems with the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Ankara.

Speaking to reporters following NATO meetings in Brussels, Cavusoglu said that Turkey saw no issues in procuring the Lockheed Martin jets despite efforts in the U.S. Congress to block the sale.

Cavusoglu added, Trump made the comment to Erdogan during talks at a recent G20 summit.

The U.S. Senate has demanded a block on the sales of the jets to Turkey unless Trump certifies that Turkey is not threatening NATO.
