BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:01 A.M.) – Turkey’s National Defense Minister Fikri Isik has said that talks with Russia over a purchase of S-400 air defense systems had reached the final stage, TASS reported.

“This does not mean a deal will be signed immediately,” Isik said on April 21.

“It is clear that Turkey needs a missile defense system”, he said.

“Work on the S-400 has reached a final point. But the final stage does not mean ‘let’s sign a deal tomorrow morning’,” he concluded.

I hope so! But Russia is in need of big money. EU will have to contribute to Greece defence to get them Rafales as it’s the sole platform known to defeat S-400 anti-stealth radar.
