Unic Press UK: The President of the Republic of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the Russian-made S-400 missile defense systems will be fully deployed on the territory of Turkey by April 2020, the TASS News Agency reported.
“S-400 deliveries to Turkey have begun. What has been said about this? It was said that we will be unable to purchase them and get them delivered. By April 2020, these systems will be fully deployed on the territory of our country. We hold true to our words as Turkish people. S-400 is the best missile defense system. I hope that we will produce it together with Russia,” Erodgan said.
Apart from installing the S-400 systems in Turkey, both countries also reached an agreement to transfer some technologies relating to the S-400 to the Turkish side.
Last week, Turkey took delivery of the first shipment of S-400 equipment from Moscow, said Turkey’s Defense Minister, Hulusi Akar.
