"Done Deal": Turkish FM Says Purchase of Russian S-400 Cannot Be Cancelled

vestikavkaza.ru

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday that purchase of Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile systems in Turkey is a done deal and cannot be canceled, adding that Ankara, however, needs further defense procurement that could be bought from the United States, Sputnik reports.

"The current deal is a done deal, I cannot cancel it," Cavusoglu told reporters after meeting with US State Secretary Mike Pompeo as quoted by Reuters. "But I need more… and I prefer to buy from my allies," Cavusoglu said.

The US Department of Defense spokesman Eric Pahon told Sputnik on Monday that the Pentagon was still working with US Congress to  find alternatives to Russia's S-400 air defense systems for Turkey.
