Russia and Turkey working on new S-400 missile contract

Russia and Turkey are working on a contract for the delivery of a new batch of Russian S-400 missile systems, head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugaev said.

He said he thought there was a "fairly high likelihood” Turkey and Russia would sign a contract for the delivery of an additional batch of S-400s next year.

"We’re gradually working on this question. Most importantly, both sides are intent on continuing cooperation in this sphere," Interfax cited a senior official as saying.

The head of Russia’s state arms exporter said late November that the countries were actively discussing Ankara taking up an option in its original missile contract for it to receive more S-400 systems.
