Russia, Turkey discussing new S-400 deal for 2020

Russian Federation could reach an agreement with Turkey on another Triumph S-400 air defense missile system in 2020, director of the Russian Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Dmitry Shugaev told Interfax on Friday.

"We are systematically working on this issue. The most important thing is that there is a spirit on both sides to continue cooperation in this area," Shugaev stressed.

Last month, Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin stated that Ankara wasn't negotiating a new missile deal with Moscow. The original contract was signed in April 2017 despite the fact Washington voiced concern over the agreement on several occasions.
