Turkey will not abandon the purchase of S-400 Triumph air defense systems from Russian Federation and nobody should be concerned about it, Turkish media quoted President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as saying July 25. Which side can ensure these measures, there the steps are taken. Deals have been inked. "God willing we will see the S-400s in our country", Erdogan told lawmakers from his ruling AK Party at a party meeting in parliament. "Greece, a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member, has been using S-300s for years", he stated. "It would be a concern, were they to do that, but they have not done that", Gen. Joseph Dunford, U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff chair, had said when asked about media reports on Turkey purchasing the S-400 system from Russian Federation, which he called "incorrect".

The S-400 Triumph is Russia's next-generation mobile surface-to-air missile system carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at a short-to-extremely-long range. Turkey was not able to co-operate with the USA over the missile system, he said, adding that this was why Turkey was seeking alternatives.
