Erdogan said that "for years, Turkey could not get what she wanted from the United States" in matters of procurement of anti-aircraft missile systems, and "was forced to search." “And this [the C-400 agreement] is the fruit of this search. Greece, a member of NATO, has been using the C-300 for years.And why are they [the US] worried? "Said the Turkish leader.
General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said earlier that Washington would be alarmed by Ankara’s purchase of C-400 systems from Moscow. Erdogan, in turn, said he did not understand why the United States is concerned about the possible purchase of the S-400 from the Russian Federation, indicating that each country has the right to take certain measures to ensure its own security.
At the same time, Vladimir Kozhin, Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation for Military-Technical Cooperation, said that the contract for the supply of Turkey with the S-400 was agreed. The fact that the negotiations between Ankara and Moscow on the purchase of the S-400 reached the final stage was also announced earlier by Turkish officials.
