Erdogan says Turkey has already bought Russian S-400 defense systems

Turkey US ultimatum over S-400s'not in spirit of alliance The US says Turkey's planned acquisition of Russia's S-400 missile system poses a threat to its F-35 jets

Meanwhile, Russia's stance on Turkey's purchase of its S-400 missile defense system has not changed, the country's ambassador to Turkey said on June 12.

But Erdogan said Wednesday that his government would hold to account anyone who excluded Turkey from the F-35 program.

Turkey has already bought the Russian S-400 missile defence systems, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday, stressing that it is a done deal.

The US had said Turkey could not have both the S-400 anti-aircraft defence system and US F-35 fighter jets. "I hope these systems will be delivered to our country next month", Erdogan said.

US officials advised Turkey to buy the US Patriot missile system rather than the S-400s from Moscow, arguing the Russian system would be incompatible with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems and expose the F-35 to possible Russian subterfuge.

Another senior U.S. official, Under Secretary of Defence Ellen Lord, told reporters that the USA did not want Russian technicians to be able to access the F-35's vulnerabilities.

Turkey has the second-largest army in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, a 29-member military alliance set up to defend against what was at the time the Soviet Union.

Akar, cited by his ministry in a statement, said Ankara was working on a response to the letter and that it would be sent to the United States in the coming days.

Turkey plans to buy 100 F-35s.

Earlier this month, Erdogan said Turkey had also been discussing a USA offer to sell Patriot missiles.

"We have so far paid $1.250 million", he said.

Shanahan said on Friday the U.S. offer for the Patriots was "very competitive" but Erdogan said Russian Federation offered a better deal including reasonable pricing and a joint-production promise. "Won't we take necessary measures to defend our country?" he said.

Turkey has been pursuing an increasingly independent defence policy and has been establishing closer links with Russian Federation after a recent souring of its ties with the U.S. and Europe. Yes, we did. Did they deliver? Ankara has proposed that the two allies form a working group to assess the impact but says it has yet to hear back from Washington.

Erdogan also said he wanted to talk about the issue on the phone with the U.S. before he meets President Donald Trump in Osaka, Japan, at the end of this month.

Russian Federation said on Tuesday it planned to deliver its S-400s to Turkey in July, setting the clock ticking on the USA sanctions threat.
