Turkey wants its S-400 agreement with Russia implemented swiftly, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.
In September, Moscow and Ankara reached an agreement on the delivery of S-400 systems to Turkey. On September 29, Russian presidential aide Vladimir Kozhin confirmed that Turkey had made an up-front payment for the S-400s, adding that the delivery is scheduled for 2019.
“We agreed with Russia on S-400 [supplies], the documents are signed. There are some technical details; we will discuss them within the framework of my visit with the participation of our specialists, with the Ministry of Defense as well. We want to take steps to implement this deal as soon as possible,” Erdogan said at the press conference before leaving for Sochi.
