Turkey To Get S-400 Missile Systems From Russia By The End 2019

Published

on

The Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems are in high demand in the global defence market. Turkey on Wednesday told NATO that it would be procuring the first batch of the S-400 missile systems by the end of 2019. In the ongoing NATO summit at Brussels, the foreign affairs minister of Turkey, Mevlut Cavusoglu informed the forum about Turkey’s S-400 deal with Russia.

As reported by TASS, Mevlut Cavusoglu also highlighted the fact that the purchase of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems from Russia would not in any way mean that Turkey is breaking apart from NATO. Turkey is the second buyer of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems after China. India too is moving towards finalising a deal of buying the S-400 missile systems from Russia. The Turkey-Russia S-400 deal was officially signed in the year 2017 and Turkey expects the first batch to be delivered by the end of 2019. Initially, the deliveries were scheduled for 2020 but Ankara sought fast-tracked deliveries which were agreed upon by Russia.

S-400 missile systems have become a hot shot in the global defence market and the THAAD missiles from the US seems to be taking a back seat.

India Too Will Be Buying The S-400 Missile Systems From Russia

India has approved to procure the advanced S-400 missile systems from Russia. India-Russia defence deal of the S-400 air defence systems will take place despite the vehement opposition of it by the US. India will procure five S-400 batteries from Russia for Rs 39,000 crore after the defence ministry cleared the proposal.

After getting approval from the defence ministry the India-Russia defence deal will now go to the finance ministry and then finally for the cabinet committee on security to get the final set of approvals. The Defence Acquisitions Council helmed by the defence minister has approved minor deviations in the S-400 deal with Russia. These deviations were proposed in the recently held commercial negotiations with Russia. India and Russia have defence projects of USD 12 billion in the pipeline.
