Turkey not Considering Plans New S-400

Wednesday 20 November 2019

ANKARA (TASS) — Turkey is not considering any plans of striking a new deal with Russia on the supplies of S-400 missile systems, Turkish Presidential Spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said on Wednesday.

According to the website of Erdogan’s administration, Kalin:

As you know, our deal was signed in April 2017, the process [of S-400 supplies] under this agreement is underway. At the moment, there is no talk on signing a new agreement. Now an effort will continue on delivering the batteries, training personnel, deploying the systems, choosing their location and software adjustment. This is certainly a long process in technical terms.

In September 2017, Russia announced that it had signed a $2.5 bln deal with Turkey on supplying S-400 missile systems. The contract envisages partial transfer of production technology to the Turkish side. The first deliveries began on July 12, 2019. The United States and NATO have been seeking to disrupt the deal. The White House said in mid-July that Turkey’s decision to purchase Russian S-400 air defence systems rendered its continued involvement with the F-35 fighter jets impossible.
