Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Russia's S-400 air defense missiles are currently being prepared to be flown to Turkey.
Speaking to reporters before leaving for Bosnia on Monday, Erdogan wouldn't say, however, when the Russian missile defense system would reach Turkey or where they will be deployed.
Turkey is standing firm against US opposition and expects to take delivery of Russia's S-400 missile defense systems next month, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Thursday.
Speaking to a group of foreign journalists, Erdogan reiterated that the deal with Russia was sealed and there would be no turning back despite vociferous US opposition.
Ankara has no intention of backing down on a deal with Russia for the S-400 missile defense system amid pressure from the United States, Turkey's Anadolou news agency reported on Tuesday.
"There is an agreement. We have determination. It is out of the question to take a step back," Anadolou quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as telling reporters in Istanbul on Tuesday.
