Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Joe Biden may meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York in September.
Axar.az reports citing Sabah newspaper.
"Negotiations for Turkiye to buy American F-16s have been going on for some time. The issue will be on the table during a possible meeting between Erdogan and Biden during the UN summit in New York next month," Sabah said.
According to the newspaper, Turkiye demands that the United States quickly solve the problem regarding the F-16 fighters' sales to Ankara and asks the Pentagon to submit the issue to Congress.
Turkiye intends to purchase 40 F-16 fighter jets from the United States and modernize 80 aircraft it has in service. US President Joe Biden has said he hopes to secure congressional approval to sell F-16 fighter jets to Turkiye.
