Turkey, Russia very close to deal for 2nd S-400 system: defense industry head

ANKARA - Turkey is very close to striking a deal to buy a second S-400 system from Russia, and the deal could be signed before April when the first batch of missile defenses will be ready to use, Ankara s defense industry said on Friday. Turkey s talks with Russia over technology transfer and joint production on the second batch of S-400 defenses has continued, the head of the Turkish Defense Industry Directorate, Ismail Demir, told a small group of journalists. Demir added that Ankara was still interested in buying U.S. Patriot defenses and had no pre-conditions for talks. Washington however has repeatedly asked Turkey to give up on the S-400 purchase, which has strained ties between the two NATO allies. REUTERS
