Erdogan Defiantly Says "Of Course" Turkey Will Buy More Russian S-400 Missile Defenses

In a rare CBS interview which aired Sunday on "Face the Nation", Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an announced his intent to purchase another round of Russian S-400 air defense systems, after under the prior Trump administration Turkey's reception of S-400s triggered deteriorated relations with Washington and a years-long diplomatic standoff which saw US threaten sanctions on its NATO ally.

Biden administration officials have on multiple occasions condemned the prior deal which "provides Russia revenue, access and influence" - as Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said earlier this year. Erdogan in the weekend interview confirmed bluntly that "of course, of course, yes" Turkey will pursue more Russian anti-air defense systems.
