Turkey's purchase of Russian S-400 missile systems does not mean a change of the country's strategic orientation, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar told his US counterpart by phone on Friday, adding that the acquisition was a necessity.


Turkey's Defence Ministry also cited Akar as saying Ankara was still assessing the bid to acquire US Patriot air defense systems and that a deterioration of bilateral relations would not serve the interests of either country.
