    Turkey says it may renege on its S-400 air missile defense contract with Russia

    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told the daily Aksam in an interview that his country may drop its S-400 air missile defense system purchase contract with Russia if no agreement for a joint production is made.

    "We have heard no official refusal on that score. [Russian President Vladimir] Putin told us we may take steps for joint production. Know-how will be crucial. If Russia’s attitude is negative, we may clinch a deal with another country," he said.

    "We must purchase them (S-400) urgently, because we need them. We’ve got to protect our airspace. But if some anti-Russia-minded countries do not want Turkey to purchase S-400 from it, then they must provide their alternative," Cavusoglu said.


    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan revealed on September 12 that Ankara had put a deposit for the S-400 after an agreement was signed.
