Turkey has announced its wish to obtain a Russian S-400 air defense missile systems, Rostec state corporation CEO Sergey Chemezov told the Rossiya-24 TV channel on Tuesday.
“They have voiced their wish to get a loan, but now the issue has not been solved. The Finance Ministry is holding talks, as soon as they sign this and take a decision on allocating a loan, we will already ink contracts on supplies, including of S-400,” Chemezov said.
The Rostec CEO gave no details on when this decision could be taken.
In February, Chemezov said that Turkey had shown interest in the Russian-made S-400 system and was in talks with Moscow on the possible supplies. In November 2016, Turkish National Defense Minister Fikri Isik reported about these talks.
