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.

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.
