NOW: “TURKEY IS OUR FRIEND” – Russia for Turkish stance on S-400’s

His appreciation to the “Turkish friends” the Russian Foreign Minister expressed during his meeting with his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu, referring to the purchase and maintenance of the S-400 Air Defence systems.

“We greatly appreciated Turkey’s stance on developing military co-operation, including the intention of our Turkish friends to use the first batch of S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems to ensure their own security,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

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.
