Turkey has already bought the Russian S-400 missile defense systems, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Wednesday, stressing that it is a done deal, Yenisafak reports.

“I'm not saying Turkey will buy S-400 defense systems, it has already bought them; we’ve closed the deal,” Erdoğan told his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party’s group meeting in the capital Ankara.

He noted that Ankara and Moscow had signed the deal with a pledge for a reasonable price and future joint production.

“This [S-400] system will be delivered to our country next month,” Erdoğan added.
