Erdogan: Will talk to Trump about buying US defenses

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (pictured) said on Friday he will talk to his American counterpart Donald Trump this month about buying Patriot missiles from the United States.

Erdogan claimed he had already discussed the purchase with Trump in a phone call two weeks ago, adding he will follow up when they meet next time at the United Nations General Assembly. However, the Turkish leader stated the conditions for the purchase would have to "at least match up" with the arrangement Ankara got from Russia.

Earlier, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned the country may buy another set of the S-400 Triumph if there is no way to get Raytheon Co.'s Patriot systems.
