ANKARA (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump told Turkey's Tayyip Erdogan that they didn't want any issues with the sale of F-35 fighter jets to Ankara, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters following NATO meetings in Brussels, Cavusoglu said that Turkey saw no issues in procuring the Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) jets despite efforts in the U.S. Congress to close the sale. Trump made the comment to Erdogan during talks in the recent G20 summit, Cavusoglu said.

The U.S. Senate has demanded a block on the sales in the jets to Turkey unless Trump certifies that Turkey is just not threatening NATO, purchasing defense equipment from Russia or detaining U.S. citizens.
