Turkey says S-400 deal with Russian Federation is complete

Turkey will have to pay $1.125 Billion as cash for the S-400 purchase (45 per cent of $2.5 billion). "A North Atlantic Treaty Organisation interoperable missile defense system remains the best option to defend Turkey from the full range of threats in its region".

Russian Federation is expected to begin deliveries of the S-400 to Turkey in March 2020, Chemezov said.

"We have an open dialogue on this issue, and have emphasized the importance of maintaining North Atlantic Treaty Organisation interoperability on any major defense systems procurements", the United States official continued.

Turkey and Russian Federation have signed an accord for Moscow to supply S-400 surface-to-air missile batteries, Turkish authorities have announced.

Last week, Gen. Petr Pavel, chairman of the NATO Military Committee, said during an event in Washington that Turkey should it go ahead with the acquisition would be "facing the consequences of that decision".

Relations between Moscow and Ankara deteriorated sharply in 2015 after Turkey shot down a Russian air force jet that it said had crossed into Turkish airspace, but they have since repaired ties despite having backed different sides in the Syrian war.

Purchasing on ruble, Turkey will save up to 3 percent of the total debt, he said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the S-400 system is necessary for national security.

Russia is expected to begin deliveries in March 2020, revealed Chemezov, noting that Turkey would become the first North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member to acquire the Russian-made S-400 missile system.

The first delivery of the S-400 missile system is scheduled to be accomplished in March 2020.

The deal, reportedly worth some $US2.5 billion ($A3.5 billion), comes amid Turkey's strengthening ties with Russian Federation and deteriorating relations with the United States and its other western countries.

The S-400 is Russia's most advanced long-range anti-aircraft missile system and can carry three types of missiles capable of destroying targets, including ballistic and cruise missiles.
