Istanbul News – Turkey’s president on Friday, confirmed the country tested the Russian-made S-400 missile defense system, despite objections from the United States. According to information received by World News Superfast, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said – Turkey had every right to test its equipment. America’s stand is not absolutely binding for us, we are not going to ask America. Washington has strongly objected to NATO member Turkey’s acquisition of the Russian anti-aircraft system. Turkey has been suspended from its F-35 fighter jet program. Saying that the S-400 is a threat to stealth fighter jets. There will be no difference with NATO action.

Ankara has also warned

According to information received by World News Superfast, if this S-400 system is activated then countering risks US sanctions through US advisors. Ankara was forced to buy the Russian system after Washington’s refusal to sell the American Patriot system. It also argues that it is Ankara’s sovereign right to buy the system it wants.

Erdogan also suggested a double standard

According to information received by World News Superfast, NATO member Greece is using its S-300 missile defense system. He asked – Is America telling them anything? Russia distributed Russian defense system last year. Turkey initially said that the S-400 will be operational in April, but it has delayed activating the system. Turkish media reported last week that the Russian S-400 air defense system was tested in the Black Sea province of Sinope. This means that the gentleman is particularly upset because it is a weapon belonging to Russia. Erdogan said – We are firm, we will continue on our path.
