Ankara is going to close the Black Sea for US warships.
States located in the Black Sea region and part of the NATO bloc may lose WashingtonвЂ™s support. The fact is that Turkey intends to block the passage of American ships through the Bosphorus.
This information appeared after the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stated that hostile actions on the part of the United States, expressed in the introduction of economic sanctions for the purchase of S-400 Triumph air defense systems from Russia, would entail serious retaliatory measures. In addition, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned Washington that the Incirlik and Kureggik airbases used by the Americans would be closed for him.
According to experts, the response from Ankara will force the US to вЂњback down.вЂќ The Pentagon will not be delighted with the expulsion of its aircraft from Turkish airfields and the inability to get warships into the Black Sea.
вЂњRomania, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Georgia вЂ” all these countries can forget about the arrival of American warships to their borders, because Turkey simply will not pass them through the Bosphorus, not to mention the fact that the Turkish Navy will not allow US ships even to their territorial water, and this creates very big problems for Washington, вЂќanalysts say.
Experts believe that the United States will not risk imposing sanctions against Turkey since in this case, the damage will be significant for them. At the same time, Washington is likely to limit military cooperation with Ankara.
