Turkish President breaks silence over issue of Russian Missile defence system and US sanctions

ISLAMABAD - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan says first delivery of Russian S-400 missile defense system will take place within 10 days.

Speaking to reporters after the G20 summit in Japan, where he held bilateral talks with Trump, Erdogan said he believed the dispute over the S-400s would be overcome without a problem.

He said, there would be no U.S. sanctions over the deal.

Meanwhile, the United says the S-400s will compromise its f-35 fighter jets, of which Turkey is a producer and buyer.

Washington has said it would impose sanctions over the deal.
