Russia highly appreciates Turkey's position on the development of military-technical cooperation and the use of the S-400 air defense system. This is what Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, RIA Novosti reports.
According to the minister, Ankara will use the first Russian air defense systems regiment to ensure its defense capacity.
Earlier, said Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who briefed the United States on Ankara's position on the purchase of Russian S-400s. The United States & nbsp; have repeatedly noted that & nbsp; the purchase by the Turkish authorities of Russia's air defense system is unacceptable. & Nbsp; For this reason, in April, Washington & nbsp; decided to exclude & nbsp; of the F-35 fighter production program.
In turn, Ankara & nbsp; said it would not refuse to supply Russian anti-aircraft systems.
