Thusly, the end game starts.



US President Donald Trump and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan have discussed a proposal to establish a joint committee to examine Turkey’s plans to purchase Russian-made S-400 missile systems, the Turkish president’s office said.

During a phone call with Trump on Monday, Erdogan personally offered to create a joint group to review the contentious sale, his office said in a statement.


The White House confirmed on Monday that Trump and Erdogan had discussed Turkey’s planned purchase of the S-400 missile defence system, according to Reuters.

The Trump administration has not yet commented publicly on whether the US is considering the Turkish proposal to form the joint working group.

Will Trump yes or no?   That is the 64K question.
