ankara - Russia and Turkey have signed an agreement on the controversial supply of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missiles to Turkey. With the deal, which both countries have worked on for more than a year, 2.1 billion euros has been converted.
The deal is controversial because Turkey is a member of NATO. In addition, the Russian equipment can not be integrated into the weapon architecture of NATO. The two countries and the alliance did not want to comment on the arms deal on Friday.
Earlier, the head of the Russian state conglomerate that builds the systems said that they are four rocket installations. The first of these is expected to be delivered to Turkey in the spring of 2020.
To pay half of the deal, Turkey lends 79 billion rubles (1.1 billion euros) from Russia, confirmed Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
