ST. PETERSBURG (TASS-DEFENCE): The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has announced the country's readiness to deliver S-400 air defence systems (ADS) to Ankara.

The manufacturing of the ADS in Turkey depends on the preparedness of the Turkish industry, he said at a meeting with the CEOs of the world's news agencies.

"We have discussed the S-400 sales and we are ready [to do this]. Regarding cooperation, it is a separate issue related to the preparedness of the Turkish industry. We do not produce such hardware abroad," Putin said answering the question by the head of the Anatolian agency.

The President alluded to the Russian-Indian joint production of the BRAHMOS missile.

"It [the production] takes decades, as the high level of the technological and human resources development is required. However, everything is possible. We are ready to deliver these newest and most effective systems, not a problem at all. The [Turkish] President [Recep Tayyip] Erdogan knows this, as well as our military and its Turkish colleagues," Putin pointed out.
