Turkey says in talks with Russia on air defense system

Turkey is in talks with Russia on the potential purchase of S-400 air missile defense systems, Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said on Friday, adding that Ankara was also in touch with other countries on missile defense, according to Reuters.

Russia`s stance on the issue has so far been positive, Isik said, as reported by Reuters.

After cancelling last year a $3.4 billion tender for a long-range missile defense system, Turkey said it planned to develop its own.

But earlier this month, a top defense official said Turkey could consider procuring one.
