"Turkey is clearly not an adversary of the United States", Akar said and added that therefore its procurement of the S-400 system should not be considered within the scope of US sanctions created to target America's enemies. "We are waiting to hear from our USA colleagues and from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", İbrahim Kalın told reporters at the Turkish embassy.

Turkey may temporarily store Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems in Azerbaijan, Trend reports referring to Turkish media.

He noted that despite appeals from the US, Turkey will not abandon the purchase of the S-400.

The U.S. already suspended deliveries of parts and services related to Turkey's receipt of the multi-million dollar fighter jets.

According to the WSJ, Turkey will most likely start to deploy the S-400 systems in the next two or three months, which means that Ankara and Washington are pressed for time to resolve the issue.

USA officials advised Turkey to buy the U.S. Earlier, the Pentagon said that the deal with Russian Federation would make Turkey ineligible for the F-35 program. Patriot missile system rather than the S-400s from Moscow, arguing that the Russian system would be incompatible with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation systems and expose the F-35 to possible Russian subterfuge.

"Although the United States urges Turkey to abandon the purchase of Russian S-400 air defense missile systems, it does not guarantee that it will sell us Patriot air defense systems", Mevlut Cavusoglu said. "I'd like to reiterate strongly that there is no change in Turkey's commitment to NATO", Akar said.

Likewise, Kalın said, Turkey expects the Trump administration to extend an existing sanctions waiver that is set to expire at the end of May to allow Turkey to continue importing Iranian oil.

"They focused their discussion on interests, rather than positions, and on the importance of US-Turkish cooperation bilaterally and as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies in achieving mutual security and economic prosperity for both countries and the region", Summers said.

It is not surprising, given the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs' statements that if the United States does not hand over F-35 to Ankara, Turkey can buy similar aircraft (that is Su-57) from Russian Federation.

In the meantime, friendship was reiterated on April 16 by the Turkish ambassador to the U.S.to describe Ankara's current relationship with Washington.
