Recently, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed that Ankara would not hold consultations with the United States on testing air defense systems.

The Turkish military is monitoring S-400 air defense systems and preparing them for deployment, Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said on Saturday.

He stressed, however, that “the purchase and planned check-ups of air defense systems do not mean that the country is alienated from NATO.”

The Defense Ministry stressed that the market does not violate Turkey’s obligations as a member of the alliance and asked NATO to point out an alternative to the air defense system, instead of criticizing the agreement.

Earlier this week, Akar confirmed that Turkey had tested air defense systems at Sinop, noting that the exercises were scheduled under the contract.
