Turkey has signed an agreement with Russia to purchase the advanced S-400 missile defense system.   

According to Turkish media, this is the most advanced integrated air defense system that can hit targets as far as 400 kilometers away.

Meanwhile, Turkey’s NATO allies have expressed concerns that the Russian system is incompatible with the air defenses of other NATO members.

Deputy Chair and Spokesman of Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development, Mahir Unal said there is no question of our not fulfilling any of our responsibilities in our relations with NATO.

Earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that a first payment for the S-400 had been made to Russia.
