Turkey considers buying a second S-400 regiment from Russia

Ismail Demir, head of the republic’s defence industry, stressed that Turkey has not yet noticed any consequences for itself after the US imposed sanctions over S-400

Ismail Demir, head of Turkey’s Defence Industry Authority, confirmed on Wednesday that Ankara continues to consider buying a second regiment of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems (SAMs) from Russia despite US pressure.

“Our work on the second [regiment] of S-400 systems continues”, –  he stressed in an interview with NTV.

Demir noted that Turkey has so far not noticed any consequences for itself following the US sanctions imposed over the purchase of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems (SAMs) from Russia.

“We have not noticed any direct effect [from US sanctions]. We will see how CAATSA (Countering America’s Adversaries through Sanctions Act) works, but at the moment there are no clear effects, we will wait”, – he said.
