Erdogan dismisses North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concerns overs Russian Federation defence system deal

Russia, Turkey Sign S-400 Deal despite Criticism and Suspicion

Moscow also confirmed the accord, with Vladimir Kozhin, Putin's adviser for military and technical cooperation, saying: "The contract has been signed and is being prepared for implementation".

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday indicated that Turkey went ahead with the purchase of Russia's S-400 missile system because it was exhausted of waiting for another supplier.

"Meanwhile, spokesman of the German Foreign Ministry Martin Schaefer stressed that Berlin does not consider the matter to be of much concern". The process will continue by the transfer of a credit from Russian Federation to us. "So what? Are we going to wait for you?"

Turkey faced similar worries during the Iran-Iraq War and the First and Second Gulf Wars due to the ballistic missiles possessed by those countries.

Russian Federation says that S-400 missiles are created to protect vital political, economic, administrative and military facilities from airstrikes, and are considered of the most advanced systems in the air- and anti-missiles defense.

Internet cringes at revelation Ivanka Tump calls her father 'Daddy'
During an appearance on The View in 2006, he famously said that "if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I would be dating her". After receiving a rousing ovation, Trump then responded with a cringeworthy "Thank you, honey".

During his speech, Erdogan said his country had to go for the Russian missile system after Western companies failed to offer "financially effective" alternatives. "A North Atlantic Treaty Organisation interoperable missile defense system remains the best option to defend Turkey from the full range of threats in its region", spokesman Johnny Michael said in a statement. And we'll be manufacturing other, better things.

Erdogan remained defiant, making it clear on Tuesday that "nobody has the right to discuss the Turkish republic's independence principles or independent decisions about its defense industry". He was referencing the US decision to arm the Kurdish YPG for the fight against ISIS in Syria, despite fierce protest by Turkey.

The Turkish president has also slammed American officials for rejecting his requests to hand over Fetullah Gulen, a powerful opposition figure living in the US. As the dispute unfolded, the U.S. in 2015 withdrew its Patriot missiles from Turkey's border with Syria after a two-year deployment.

The spat has prompted Germany to restrict its arms sales to Turkey.
