Turkey has officially announced its intentions to transfer to the United States all the necessary technologies related to the S-400 complexes acquired from Russia.  This is due to Ankara's attempt to remain in the program of the American fifth generation F-35 fighter, moreover, Turkey itself does not hide this at all, directly stating that it is ready to eliminate all US concerns from a technical point of view.

 
Turkish Minister of National Defense Hulusi Akar announced Ankara's readiness to“ eliminate the concerns ”of the United States over the incompatibility of the American fifth generation F-35 fighters and the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.  "Turkey continued to produce key components for the F-35, despite the pandemic and its exclusion from the number of countries participating in the project for their creation," Akar said.  He added that "Turkey is not a client in the F-35 production program, but a partner."  “We are ready from a technical point of view to eliminate the concern of the United States about the incompatibility of the S-400 and F-35,” the minister noted.
 
Given this position of Turkey, it is logical to assume that this country not only has no intentions to acquire Russian Su-35 and Su57 fighters, but is also ready to convey to Washington any information that would confirm the fact that nothing threatens the F-35 fighters.
 
 Remarkable is the fact that Turkey at the moment does not confirm the information that it intends to buy the second batch of S-400 complexes from Russia.
