Turkey says interested in Russian S-500 missiles too

He also noted that there was no problem with Turkey's planned purchase of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems, Haberturk reported.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said there was no problem with the purchase of Russian S-400 anti-aircraft systems, adding that Ankara also held talks on the S-500, a THAAD-type system, now under development.

Erdogan underlined that Turkey has the right to self-defense, and no country in the world has the right to tell it what to do.

Reportedly in July 2017, Turkey reached an agreement with Russian Federation to purchase the S-400.

Erdogan did not say when he had discussed the issue with Putin.

In July, US Defense Secretary James Mattis said that S-400 anti-aircraft systems are "not going to be interoperable with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems".

Ankara's decision to buy the S-400s has been seen in some Western capitals as a snub to the alliance, given tensions with Moscow over Ukraine and Syria, while the deal raised concern because the weapons can not be integrated into the alliance's defences.

He noted that Turkey must ensure its own security and based on this, it was made a decision to acquire Russian S-400 air defense system.

Turkey has the second-largest military force in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, after the US, but ties among the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have worsened last July after a failed coup attempt.

Ankara also objects to some North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members' military support for Syrian Kurdish rebels, who are linked to PKK terrorists.
