For 3rd day, Russian Federation delivers S-400 system parts to Turkey

Erdogan says Trump can waive sanctions on Turkey Turkish President Erdogan speaks during a meeting in AnkaraMore

While the Pentagon declined to discuss the call, the Turkish ministry released a statement late Friday, saying Akar stressed that the purchase of S-400 defense systems "was not an option but rather a necessity" due to Turkey's security concerns. No details regarding when and where the Russian surface-to-air missiles will be installed have been revealed yet.

Esper, who is expected to be officially nominated next week to be defense secretary, told reporters at the Pentagon that the US remains unwilling to allow Turkey to acquire the U.S. F-35 stealth fighter, as long as it has the S-400.

Asked about the US sanctions on Iran, Erdogan underlined that the region is exhausted of war and that Turkey disapproves of the sanctions.

"Today's news that Turkey has taken delivery of the first batch of S-400 air defense systems from Russian Federation is not good", Paet wrote on his social media page Friday, BNS reports.

Russian Federation and Turkey penned a $2.5 billion agreement on the sale of four battalion sets of S-400s to Turkey in late 2017.

Kate makes third visit to Wimbledon to watch men's final with William
The 56-minute dissection of the Williams playbook was the 23-time Slam winner's most lopsided loss in a major final. But at that point her opponent, Serena Williams , was shuffling towards the net, head bowed and hand outstretched.

The US has however strongly urged Turkey to pull back from the deal - the first such move between a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member and Russian Federation - warning Ankara that it will face economic sanctions under the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act if it goes ahead with the purchase, reportedly costing more than $2billion.

Erdogan also said that Turkey is not included in the U.S. Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) - the legislation under which sanctions would come - and so sanctions or removing Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet project is "out of the question". "Unfortunately, he has clearly made the wrong one", said Eliot Engel and Michael McFaul, the top Democrat and Republican respectively on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

The deliveries for the Russian-made defense system, which is driving a rift between Turkey and the United States, began Friday.

Turkey, a fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nation, has refused to bow to US pressure, saying its defense purchase is a matter of national sovereignty. Three years ago, the Turkish presidential palace was bombed by rogue elements of its military in an attempted coup, and some analysts suggest the missiles could be used to protect Erdogan.

Turkey, however, emphasized the S-400 would not be integrated into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems and would not pose a threat to the alliance.
