Turkey doesn't intend to discuss abandonment of S-400 systems with U.S.

Turkey does not plan to abandon Russia's S-400 anti-aircraft missile system under pressure of the U.S., President of Turkish Defense Industries Directorate (SSB) Ismail Demir said.

According to him, Turkey 'is capable of determining its own policy'.

“This is not a subject of discussion for us. We addressed the issue in the past. Abandoning [the use of S-400] is out of the question,” Demir added.

Earlier, it was reported that the U.S. has informally raised with Turkey the possibility of sending its Russian-made S-400 missile defense systems to Ukraine.
