Turkey has a signed a $2.5 billion deal with Russia to buy S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

Ankara has already paid the deposit on the deal, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. The process will continue through a transfer of a credit from Russia to us. Both Russian President Vladimir Putin and myself, we are determined on this issue," Hurroyet Daily quoted Erdogan as saying Tuesday.

Ankara and Moscow had signed 'certain documents' as part of a deal on the purchase of Russian-made S-400 long-range air defense missile systems in July this year.

Moscow also confirmed the accord, with Vladimir Kozhin, Putin's adviser for military and technical cooperation, saying: "The contract has been signed and is being prepared for implementation."

He said that the S-400 was one of the most complex systems, made up of a whole range of technical materials.

"I can only guarantee that all decisions taken on this contract strictly comply with our strategic interests," he was quoted as saying by Russian TASS news agency.
