Ankara is still considering the purchase of Russia's advanced S-400 missile systems as part of the effort to boost Turkey's missile defense, Turkish Ambassador to Russia Huseyin Dirioz said Monday.

Turkey Wants to Buy Russian S-400 to 'Develop Its Own Missile Defense System'
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Rostech CEO Sergei Chemezov earlier confirmed that Moscow and Ankara were in talks on deliveries of S-400 air defense systems to Turkey.

"Turkey is considering various options for its missile defenses, including the S-400, but no decision has been made yet," Dirioz said.

The S-400 is Russia's next-generation air defense system, carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at a short-to-extremely-long range. The weapon is capable of tracking and destroying all existing aerial targets, including ballistics and cruise missiles.

Turkey canceled last November its $4-billion tender for the procurement of components for a domestic missile defense system announced in 2009.
