Interior ministry: Russia's S-400 to minimize Turkey’s external dependence
The introduction of the Russian surface-to-air missile systems S-400 into service will minimize the country’s external dependence, the Minister of Internal Affairs of Turkey Suleyman Soylu said.
"The purchase of S-400 air defense missile systems meets Turkey’s national interests that have nothing to do with politics. The Russian systems minimize Turkey’s external dependence. This is very important for our country," TASS cited the interior minister as saying.
The minister explained that Turkey has the right to ensure its security, and for this purpose buys Russian surface-to-air missile systems.
