Turkey Continuing to Check, Prepare Russian-Made S-400s for Deployment - Tasnim News Agency

The Turkish military is checking the S-400 air defense systems and preparing them for deployment, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar stated on Saturday.

He stressed, however, that "the purchase and planned check-ups of the air defense systems do not mean that the country is alienating itself from NATO", Sputnik reported.

Earlier this week, Akar confirmed that Turkey had conducted tests of the air defense systems in Sinop, noting that the drills were scheduled in accordance with the contract.

Moscow and Ankara signed a loan agreement for the delivery of the S-400 systems in December 2017, and last year several batteries worth $2.5 billion were sent to Turkey.
