Russia, Turkey S-400 Missile Agreement to Be Signed Next Year

Russia is likely to sign a contract for delivery of an additional batch of its S-400 missile systems to Turkey next year, Reuters reported citing Russian news agency Interfax.

Turkey bought a batch of the missile systems from Russia last year, leading to its suspension by Washington from the U.S. F-35 stealth fighter jet program. The United States has said that Turkey risks U.S. sanctions if it deploys the Russian-made S-400s.
