While technical specifications of the S-400 'Triumf' Anti-aircraft Missile System have been discussed between Russia and Turkey, the contract itself is yet to be clinched.
"We, as providers, demonstrate the needed technical and technological level of this production to be delivered, and that is the talks’ main point," Rostech’s CEO for International Cooperation and Regional Policy Viktor Kladov was quoted as saying by TASS.
"Yes, we’ve met and agreed on the specifications," he said, responding to a question about whether Rosoboronexport’s delegation had visited Turkey to discuss the trade details, the contract itself has not been clinched yet, according to Kladov.
Kladov elaborated that the technical side of the bargain is being discussed now. "There are commercial issues, monetary and financial issues and political matters involved," he noted.
Early this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin had said that Russia was ready to supply S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to Turkey.
The S-400 Triumf is a long-range anti-aircraft missile system that became operational in 2007. It is used to destroy aircraft, winged and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and may be used to destroy surface facilities
Turkey will be the first NATO member country to purchase the system, if the country reaches an agreement with Russia for their procurement.
