Russia's Peskov praises Turkey for standing upright against U.S. threats over S-400 purchase from Russia

Russia welcomes the tough stance of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in response to pressure put on Ankara by the United States in connection with the purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems.

This was announced by the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov in the program "Moscow, Kremlin andPutin" on the TV channel "Russia-1" on Sunday.

“The pressure is really unprecedented. We welcome the rather tough and categorical position taken by President Erdogan. We believe that only such a position will allow us to build a dialogue really freely and sovereignly,” he commented on Ankara’s statements regarding the purchase of Russian systems.

Peskov added that in the entire world "If we are to count the countries that are capable of behaving sovereignly, they wouldn’t exceed five fingers of one hand.” According to him, Russia and Turkey are among them.

On April 9, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo warned Turkish authorities that after deploying the S-400, Ankara will no longer be able to participate in the program to create and acquire F-35 US fighter-bombers and could face CAATSA sanctions.
