There are no restrictions of the military political nature for joint production of S-400 missile systems with Turkey or transfer of the corresponding technologies to that country, this is a purely commercial issue, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday after talks with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in Ankara.
"The issue about joint production or technologies transfer is not a matter of trust or any political cooperation for us. It is a purely commercial matter that is agreed between economic entities," he said. "We have no military political considerations and restrictions concerning it."
Russia has decided to expedite deliveries of S-400 missile systems to Turkey, according to Putin.
"Naturally, we discussed cooperation between Russian and Turkey in the military technical sphere, in particular, the implementation of the contract for supplies of S-400 Triumf missile systems to Turkey. We have decided to expedite deliveries if these highly efficient Russian-made defense systems," Putin said.
