Russia and Turkey have agreed on all technical aspects of the deal on supplies of S-400 missile systems, and Moscow is currently considering the possibility of providing Ankara with a loan for the purchase of these weapons, CEO of Rostec Corporation Sergey Chemezov said Saturday on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

“As for the S-400 system, the discussions are going on, all the technical issues have already been agreed on, the current discussions refer to the financial issues, the Turkish side is seeking to get a loan,” Chemezov told reporters, adding that Turkish and Russian Finance Ministries were engaged in talks on the issue, though he did not know the outcome of the negotiations.
