Russia: Turkey can't give US S-400 without approval

Turkey cannot unilaterally decide to export the S-400 surface-to-air missile defense system that it purchased from Russia to the United States, Russian Interfax reported on Tuesday.

If Turkey wants to export the S-400, it will need to obtain Russia's permission first.

Last week, a proposal in the United States Senate suggested that Washington should buy the S-400 from Turkey. Earlier, the United States criticized Turkey heavily for buying the missile defense system from Russia. However, in March President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed the US stance softened and that Ankara is now only being asked not to use the system that it bought.
