Turkey Dares US To Stop Purchase of S-400 Air Defence Systems

Published

on

The Russian S-400 Air Defence Systems have been in news for quite some time due to US sanctions and policies. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country does not need to ask anyone for permission to buy S-400 missile defence missile systems from Russia, the Milliyet newspaper reported.

“We have made an agreement with Russia on S-400 Air Defence Systems, and some are nations are concerned by that. I’m sorry, but we’re not going to ask anyone for permission,” the newspaper quoted Erdogan.

News about Russian-Turkish talks on the delivery of the S-400 missile systems first came to light in November 2016. In September 2017, Turkish President announced that Ankara had signed a contract with Moscow on purchasing the S-400 systems and made an advance payment. Head of Russia’s Rostec State Corporation Sergei Chemezov said that the delivery would begin in March 2020.

Meanwhile, the US had warned Turkey that in case Ankara purchased the S-400 systems from Russia, the US may refuse to sell the F-35 fighter jets to Turkey. The S-400 Triumf is an advanced long-range anti-aircraft missile system that is designed to destroy aircrafts, cruise and ballistic missiles. The S-400 complex can engage targets at a distance of 400 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.
