MOSCOW: Turkey is in talks to purchase extra S-400 missile defence methods from Moscow, Russia’s state arms exporter mentioned, regardless of Washington’s repeated warnings in opposition to such a purchase order.
Alexander Mikheyev, head of state arms exporter Rosoboronexport, advised Interfax information company that the 2 international locations had been discussing financing and “a delivery schedule”.
He didn’t present additional particulars on the continued talks.
In July, NATO member Turkey obtained the primary batch of Russia’s S-400 missile defence methods in a transfer that raised tensions with the US.
In response, Washington kicked Turkey off its F-35 fighter jet programme.
The US says Russia will have the ability to glean delicate technical data in regards to the new fighter whether it is operated alongside the S-400.
Moscow and Ankara have made a lot of their defence and political cooperation.
This week, Russia and Turkey agreed to make sure Kurdish forces withdraw from areas near Syria’s border with Turkey and to launch joint patrols.
The settlement cemented Russia and Turkey’s roles as the primary overseas gamers in Syria, after US President Donald Trump introduced the withdrawal of American forces from the nation’s north earlier this month.
