Cavusoglu: Turkey ready to accept S-400 from Moscow

Turkey stands ready to accept the delivery of the S-400 missile defense systems from Russia as soon as Moscow is ready to deliver, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu (pictured) said on Friday.

"As soon as Russia is ready to deliver them to us, we will be ready to accept them," he told reporters despite several warnings from the United States that the purchase will damage bilateral relations between Washington and Ankara.

Earlier, the Turkish diplomat stated the missile defense system will be fully incorporated in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Turkey will have "total control" over it.
