The first shipment of Russia’s S-400 defence missile system to Turkey has now been completed,Turkish officials said.

Russia has completed delivery of the first shipment of its S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems to Turkey and a second shipment is now being planned, Turkish military officials said.

Turkey began taking delivery of the advanced Russian air defence system earlier this month, a route taken after Washington initially rejected Turkey’s request to purchase Raytheon’s Patriot missile system.

Washington in-turn announced it was removing NATO ally Turkey from the F-35 fighter jet programme, following its threats to do so, over what it says are security concerns.

Washington has also threatened to impose sanctions on Turkey.
