Turkey Finalizing S-400 Missile Deal With Russia

Defense leaders in Turkey are finalizing an agreement with the Kremlin to procure Russian-made S-400 missile defense systems.

The two countries have been in negotiations over the purchase since August 2016. Recent comments by Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to local media quoted by the TASS news agency suggest the parties are close to reaching a deal.”The S-400 talks are going on positively,” he said.

The Daily Sabah reports Turkey’s defense leadership says the goal of the purchase is to fulfill the country’s missile defense needs while its own contractors work to produce a domestic solution.

“Turkey certainly needs a missile defense system and started a program with the aim of developing our domestically produced system,” Turkish defense minister Fikri Isik said during a televised interview. “This program takes time, thus we have held negotiations with different countries to fulfill Turkey’s urgent requirement and it seems as though Russia is the most suitable candidate for fulfilling the country’s need at the moment.”

Turkey’s government has expressed interest in buying the S-400 since 2013, when it initially approached China for the missile system. Officials were forced to cancel the deal in November 2015 in response to NATO’s disapproval.

“I believe that [NATO] will understand Turkey’s decision [to purchase S-400s] and will empathize,” Isik added. “Even some [other] NATO members have been using systems purchased from countries outside of NATO.”

The S-400 missile system is an anti-aircraft solution developed by Russia’s Almaz Central Design Bureau to replace aging S-300 platforms. The weapon is capable of firing several missile variants, including long-range, medium-range and short-range munitions.
