The Kremlin is not commenting on Ankara claiming that Russia and Turkey had signed a document on supplies of S-400 systems to Turkey.
Axar.az reports that it was told by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
Earlier in the day Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey and Russia had signed a document on supplies of S-400 missile systems.
The S-400 Triumph is Russia's next-generation mobile surface-to-air missile system carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at a short-to-extremely-long range. It integrates a multifunctional radar, autonomous detection and targeting systems, anti-aircraft missile systems, launchers, and a command and control center.
On July 18, the head of Russia's Rostec state corporation Sergei Chemezov said technical issues of the contract for the supply of the S-400 systems to Turkey had been resolved, with only administrative ones remaining.
As of now, Russia has concluded a contract for the delivery of the S-400 systems with China alone. Negotiations are also being conducted with India.
