“I told US President Donald Trump that we will not give up the S-400, but at the same time we can buy Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems if favorable conditions are provided to us. We would like to diversify our air defense system, ”Erdogan quotes TASS.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu spoke about the reasons for buying the S-400 from Russia.

Ankara noted that the S-400 should, among other things, strengthen NATO's defenses.
