Erdogan: Turkey not to abandon purchase of S-400 system

Erdogan: Turkey not to abandon purchase of S-400 system

Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan bashed Germany, NATO, the US and Israel in a speech to his party on Tuesday, signaling an accelerated political realignment away from the West as he seeks to conclude a missile defense deal with Russian Federation.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member Turkey said in April it had reached a "final stage" in talks to procure the air missile defense system.

The Turkish leader's remarks came days after US Gen. Joseph Dunford, US Joint Chiefs of Staff chair, said Turkey and Russian Federation should not not agree on the procurement of the missile defense system. Turkey had worked for years to buy similar systems from the US but was unable to conclude a deal allowing joint production, he said.

"We believe the arrest of both the (local) chairman and director of Amnesty International signifies a step change in the human rights crisis in Turkey", Shetty said after meeting Mogherini. "God willing, we will see S-400s in our country", Erdogan said in a speech to his ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) lawmakers in parliament. "But until the advance is paid and the assembly begins, we can't be sure of anything".

Turkish media have commented that Turkey may decide to use Russian missiles without integrating them into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems, as Greece did for its Russian S-300 missile system located on the Aegean island of Crete.

"As you see, the dialogue is real and vibrant", Mogherini told reporters at the end of the hour-long press conference.
She suggested that "next time we have the dialogue with the press directly". Do they actually employ it? All that kind of stuff. "Are you sure you know who you are hitting?" he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has ramped up his anti-Western rhetoric, saying the era of a submissive Turkey bowing to every Western demand is over.

Shetty said Turkey's role in helping the migrants was "always appreciated" but it also allowed Anakara "to hold the European Union hostage".

"If there are problems, we must negotiate more", he said, adding that it was "not realistic to stop negotiations". "There's no other option".
