UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke about negotiations with Turkey on the supply of promising new weapons. He stated this on Monday, September 16, at a press conference following the results of the trilateral summit in Ankara.
“Military-technical ties are deepening, a contract is being implemented to equip the Turkish armed forces with S-400 Triumph systems. Negotiations are underway on promising new weapons,” the TASS quotes.
Putin noted that Russian-Turkish cooperation is developing dynamically in various directions. According to him, the commodity circulation of the two countries last year exceeded $ 25 billion, and strategically important projects in the energy sector are now being successfully implemented – the construction of Akkuyu NPP and the Turkish Stream gas pipeline.
On August 28, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, together with Vladimir Putin, visited the MAKS-2019 air show. The Turkish leader became interested in Russian fighters and on August 30 announced that negotiations on the supply of Su-57 are underway and will continue.
In mid-July, the United States unilaterally expelled Turkey from the F-35 production program. This happened after Russia began to supply S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to the republic.
