(Ankara) In something of a publicity coup , the Russians have managed to get the Turkish government to purchase its S400 missile system , mind you the offer of a loan in which to do so will certainly help.
''Russia's S-400 missile systems will not be integrated into the N.A.T.O. system.''
"We underwent negotiations to purchase N.A.T.O.-produced missile systems, but we could not get a reasonable offer in terms of price and technology transfer. Thus, our negotiations with the Russians have intensified,"No doubt the recent revelation that Germany has refused to sell weapons to fellow NATO member Turkey helped them knock on Moscow's door.
