“Yes, we conducted tests regarding S-400. In any case, we did not need to address the US in this regard,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan while answering the question of journalists following Friday prays, APA’s bureau in Turkey reports. 

Erdogan noted that Turkey is testing not only the S-400 but also heavy, medium and light weapons, as well as weapons purchased from the United States: “After this, we will continue to do the same. In the neighborhood, Greece not only tests the S-300 but also uses these weapons. Is America asking them about it?. No, it is not.  Because, probably, they are especially concerned about the fact that this is a Russian weapon. But we are determined and will continue on our way in this way.”

Turkish President also said he did not believe the ceasefire in Libya would be permanent: “A ceasefire was declared between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the ceasefire was supposed to start at 00.00 at night, but it was not observed, Armenia violated it. I hope this will not happen in Libya.”
