Earlier this month, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan informed US President Joe Biden at their meeting at the NATO summit in Brussels that Turkey’s stance on the S-400 issue has not changed, nor is it predicted to happen.

After the two presidents met, the US reaffirmed once again that it also did not change its mind about Turkey’s purchase of Russian systems, while Erdogan had said negotiations would continue between the two countries’ officials until the issue was resolved.
