Turkey brushes off North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concerns over Russian Federation missile defence deal

Turkey brushes off North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concerns over Russian Federation missile defence deal”

The S-400 is Russia's most advanced long-range anti-aircraft missile system and can carry three types of missiles capable of destroying targets including ballistic and cruise missiles.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has rejected North Atlantic Treaty Organisation concerns over his country's purchase of Russian-made missile defence systems.

"They have gone mad because we signed an S-400 deal there". What were we supposed to do, wait for you?

The deal has raised concerns with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies who say the country should invest in systems compatible with theirs. "A North Atlantic Treaty Organisation inter-operable missile defense system remains the best option to defend Turkey from the full range of threats in its region", Pentagon Spokesman Johnny Michael said in a statement Tuesday.

Turkey, however, accuses allies of failing to meet its defence needs.

"The purchase of military equipment by Turkey is a sovereign choice which does not need to be commented (upon) by members of the Atlantic alliance", Foreign ministry spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said in response to a question on whether this was a blow to the alliance.

Erdogan's remarks follow a statement from the US State Department on Tuesday which voiced concerns over Ankara's purchase of the Russian missile system.
