Erdogan: No backtrack from S-400 deal with Russian Federation

"Whatever sanctions will be decided, whatever statement would come from the United States, we have purchased S-400s and right now we are talking about when they will be delivered", Cavusoglu said.

Turkey will start receiving its order of Russian S-400 air defense systems in July, according to the Turkish president.

U.S. officials urged Turkey to buy U.S. Patriot missiles, arguing the Russian system would be incompatible with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems and expose the F-35s to possible Russian subterfuge.

He said Turkey was working on the date for the system's delivery, which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said would be in the first half of July.

The minister also said that Turkey can not rely on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in its national defense and accused Ankara's Western allies of leaving it all alone in its hour of need.

The online retailer also says there will be some big surprises from some of the world's top talent to be announced . There will be over 1 million deals available worldwide, which is the same number Amazon offered past year .

Turkey urgently needs air defense.

"If there's an attack on Turkey tomorrow, we can not expect North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to protect us because NATO's capacity would only protect 30% of Turkey's airspace", Cavusoglu said. The United States says the S-400s are not compatible with NATO's systems and are a security threat to its own F-35 programme.

"All decisions should be taken by consensus", Cavusoglu said, reiterating that Turkey is also a partner to the program and has made large contributions. According to Rostech Director General Sergei Chemezov, the contract cost is 2.5 billion USA dollars. "The president has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiably eliminate Iran's nuclear weapons program, its ballistic missile delivery systems, its support for global terrorism and other malign behavior worldwide", Bolton said in Jerusalem. As Turkey produces some of the parts for the fighter jet, the Pentagon has recently said it has already begun to line up alternative manufacturers.

Turkey is adamant on going ahead with the Russian S-400 Triumf long-range surface-to-air missile system despite the threat of sanctions from the United States of America. Washington then repeatedly claimed that the Russian-made weapons would compromise North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems, including the F-35. "It is not possible for us to give up on the purchase of the S-400", he added.
