Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan told Reuters on Tuesday that he has received "positive" feedback from the U.S. senators he has met in New York on their potential support for the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Turkey.

Turkey has sought to buy 40 Lockheed Martin-made F-16 fighter jets and modernization kits from the United States. President Joe Biden has said he supports the sale but the critical sentiment in U.S. Congress toward some of Ankara's policies could derail the sale.
