Turkey has signed an agreement to purchase the S-400 missile defense system from Russia. The deal is worth an estimated $2.5 billion.
Part of the agreement is once the S-400 are delivered to Ankara the Turkish armed forces will have complete control of the weapons. The missiles are scheduled to delivered sometime in 2020. When they do arrive Turkey will be the only member of NATO(North Atlantic Treaty Organization) with the S-400 missile system.
This is an obvious move for Turkey to have the ability to defend against a possible attack from Islamist militant groups.
It will be interesting to see if president Donald Trump will comment on this deal.
