Turkey receives 2nd batch of S-400 parts from Russia

Ankara: Turkey on Tuesday received the second batch of the equipment of Russia-made S-400 defence system, the country's Defence Ministry announced here.

"The second batch of components of S-400 missile defence system has arrived at Murted Air Base near Ankara," the Ministry said in a statement on Twitter."The delivery process will continue for around one month," it added.The first batch of S-400 defence system was delivered from Russia to Turkey in July and completed on July 25.Turkey signed a contract with Russia in April 2017 to purchase the advanced S-400 systems. 

Tensions between the US and Turkey have escalated ever since over the deal as Washington claims that the S-400 system would be incompatible with the NATO system and may expose its confidential military information to Russia.Washington has repeatedly threatened to halt Turkey's purchase of F-35 fighters if Ankara goes ahead with the delivery of the S-400s.
