Erdogan Says No Intention Of Backing Out Of S-400 Missile Deal With Russia


(Worthy News) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says his country is determined to go through with a deal to purchase S-400 missile-defense systems from Russia, despite opposition from Washington.

"As for the S-400, the deal is done, and it is out of the question to go backwards...and perhaps after the S-400, we will move onto the S-500," Erdogan told Kanal-24 television on March 6.

The U.S. State Department on March 5 again warned Turkey about going ahead with the purchase of the Russian air-defense system, adding that Washington might reconsider giving Ankara access to the advanced F-35 fighter jet program if it buys the Russian S-400 system.
