Erdogan says ‘no backtrack’ on Russia missile deal

AFP, Ankara

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said yesterday that NATO-member Turkey would take delivery of Russia’s S-400 missile defence system in July—a deal that has created tensions with the United States.

“The issue of S-400 is an issue directly related to our sovereignty and we will not backtrack from that,” Erdogan said in a televised speech.

“God willing, the delivery of the S-400 will start next month,” he said.

“In order to meet its security needs, Turkey... does not need to get permission, let alone bow to pressure.”

Erdogan has vowed to use his good relations with US counterpart Donald Trump to defuse tensions when they meet on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan later this week.
