President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the U.S. President acknowledged Turkey's position regarding the S-400 missile defense system after he told him about the circumstances, APA reports citing Daily Sabah.

"I told Mr. Trump how Turkey was pushed into buying the S-400 missile defense system from Russia and he acknowledged our position," Erdogan told a parliamentary group meeting of the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) on Tuesday.

The president continued by saying that he told his U.S. counterpart that Ankara would seek alternatives if the U.S. does not adopt a compromising stance regarding the F-35s, as he reiterated once again that Turkey will not give up the S-400s.
