Top diplomat confirms Turkey will buy Russia’s S-400 missile systems


Turkey will purchase Russia’s S-400 missile systems and this issue is closed, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told NTV channel on Tuesday.
"We are buying the S-400 systems from Russia, this issue is closed," Cavusoglu said.
Cavusoglu stressed that Turkey is not planning to give up this deal despite the decision of the US Senate.
The US Senate adopted on Monday the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2019, which obliges the Secretary of Defense to present a special report regarding the potential purchase of the S-400 air and missile defense system from Russia by the Turkish government.
