Türkiye has rejected a proposal by Washington that an S-400 anti-missile defence system which Türkiye bought from Russia be sent to Ukraine.

Source: Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, quoted by the Turkish news agency Anadolu.

Details: Çavuşoğlu said the US had argued that the S-400 system purchased from Russia should exclude Türkiye from the F-35 fighter jet program, and suggested that Türkiye hand control of the system over to the US or another country, such as Ukraine, as it tries to fight off Russian forces.

Çavuşoğlu said these proposals were unacceptable because they were intended to encroach on Turkish sovereignty.

Quote: "The US asked us to send the S-400s to Ukraine, and we said no.".

US officials expressed opposition to its deployment, arguing that S-400s would be incompatible with NATO systems.

But Türkiye stated that the S-400s would not be integrated into NATO systems and would pose no threat to the Alliance or its armaments. »

Israel's Steakholder Foods has now partnered with Singapore-based Umami Meats to make fish fillets without the need to stalk dwindling fish populations.

Cow stem cells have been studied extensively but much less is known about fish, said Umami's chief executive, Mihir Pershad. »
