Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke about the proposal to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. The Turkish leader wanted to work together to produce anti-aircraft missile system s-500, according to Twitter, the Agency Anadolu.
“Russia has provided us with credit for the C-400 on very reasonable terms. On the second and third stages we will start manufacturing the collective. Perhaps the joint production of C-500” — said Erdogan.
About when the discussions took place between politicians and what was the reaction of Vladimir Putin, not reported.
In September 2017, Moscow and Ankara signed an agreement to supply Turkey systems s-400. The cost of the agreement is $ 2.5 billion, more than half of the amount will cover the Russian loan.
Turkey in April 2018 has confirmed its decision despite American sanctions against Russia. Earlier at the request of Ankara delivery time accelerated and moved to July 2019.
