Russia Mulls Supplying S-400 Systems to NATO member Turkey

Russia Mulls Supplying S-400 Systems to NATO member Turkey

Alwaght- Russia sees no problem in supplying the S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey despite the country's NATO membership.

In an interview with Rossiya'24 news channel Vladimir Kozhin, the Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide for cooperation in defense-related technologies has said talks on deliveries of S-400's to Turkey, which took an interest in these surface-to-air missiles, were underway.

"Yes, Turkey is a NATO member, it's true, but we are not afraid," the official said. "You may ask why. Well, first of all, we always regulate strictly the products of intellectual activity before we supply anything anywhere and each country assumes obligations on what it can or can't do with the [Russian] weaponry it purchases."

Kozhin added that the Russian Armed Forces still possess more advanced weapons from defense manufacturers - S-500 air defense and antimissile missile systems that capitalize on novel technological physical principles.

Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed the exports of S-400 systems to Turkey at the beginning of March when the Turkish president visited Moscow.

Sergei Chemezov, the president of Rostec Corporation, said earlier Turkey had voiced interest in getting a loan from Russia for the purchases of armaments, including the S-400 systems.

Bilateral relations between Russia and Turkey have been rapidly improving following the reconciliation between the countries. However, many NATO members are unhappy about the developments and seek to hinder the cooperation between the countries.
