In 2017, Turkey signed an agreement with Russia to spend US $2.5 billion to purchase four S-400 air defense missile systems. In this regard, the United States strongly opposes this, saying that this is destroying the defense forces of the NATO organization.

Just last week, Turkeys obvious test launch of the S-400 air defense missile system triggered a strong reaction from the US State Department and the Department of defense.

It seems that some people (on the US side) are particularly uneasy about Russian made weapons. We are determined and will continue to push forward as always. Erdogan added that Turkey will continue to test a variety of military equipment, including light, medium and heavy weapons, including a large number of weapons purchased from the United States.

Reuters pointed out that Turkey and the United States, two NATO allies, have long had differences on the S-400 issue.

Under repeated warnings from the United States, the Turkish government is determined to purchase the Russian made S-400 system, which also led to Turkey being expelled from the F-35 fighter program of multinational cooperation in July last year.
