Russia has reiterated selling S-400 missile systems to India and Turkey.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in a meeting with the press Thursday, said “Russia is ready to supply S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to Turkey.”

“Russia is preparing to supply S-400 Triumf anti-aircraft missile systems to India and both sides are discussing the terms of the sale,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said.

 Pre-contract preparations underway on the supplies of the S-400 anti-aircraft missile complexes to India, Rogozin said. 

"It is difficult to say yet how much time they will take. There is an agreement between governments and now we are simply discussing the terms," Russia's official Tass News Agency quoted Rogozin as saying on the sidelines of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ongoing visit to this Russian city.

As for the S-400 production in Turkey, this is the issue of the Turkish industry’s readiness, the Russian leader said. "We discussed the possibility of selling S-400 systems. We are ready for this," Putin said in reply to a question from the head of the Anadolu news agency. 

"As for cooperation, this is a separate issue related to the Turkish industry’s readiness. We do not produce such hardware anywhere abroad so far," the Russian president said. 

"But in principle, there is nothing impossible. We are ready for the deliveries of these newest and most effective systems. President [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan knows about this and our military knows and the Turkish military knows too," Putin said.
