Turkey’s Erdogan says no delays in S-400 deal with Russia
Head of state Tayyip Erdogan stated on Saturday there were no setbacks in a bargain to acquire Russian S-400 rocket protection systems, adding that “eyes get on the distribution process,” anticipated in the first half of July.
Erdogan, speaking before discussions with Russian Head of state Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Japan, also said it was essential to finish the first reactor in the Akkuyu nuclear power plant by 2023.
The USA has alerted that it would impose permissions on Turkey if it went in advance with the S-400 offer. Turkey has rejected the cautions as well as said it would certainly not back down.
Relationships between the NATO allies have ended up being stretched.
Erdogan will also meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Osaka.
