Putin and Erdogan warn U.S. over Jerusalem move

On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin standing beside him, told the media that his country would buy the S-400 - Russia's most advanced long-range anti-missile system.

Turkey expects to receive its first such system in 2019, defence Minister Nurettin Canikli said in November adding that the deal includes two S-400 systems while one was optional. "We have a harmonious working environment at the political level". "We will have another meeting in Sochi to discuss this matter", Erdogan said after talks with Putin in Ankara.

Pointing out that Moscow and Ankara "have a similar approach" towards a number of burning issues in the Middle East, Putin and Erdogan outlined their positions on developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as well as the situation in Syria.

This was the eighth meeting between the two leaders this year.

"Within the first eight months [of 2017], Turkish agricultural exports to Russian Federation increased by 1.8 percent", said the president.

The Turkish president added that Israel saw US recognition of Jerusalem as its capital as a chance to increase oppression and violence against the Palestinians. The project will be completed by 2028-29.

The deal is a Russian dagger in the heart of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, whose only Muslim, Middle Eastern nation is Turkey.

"I will not hide that in my day's visit to Syria I have talked extensively with President Assad on this issue", Putin said.

Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow, reporting from Ankara, said Putin "has capitalised on the anti-Trump fervor in the region" with his three-leg regional tour.

Marwan Karbalam, another prominent analyst on Middle East affairs has also said Putin's trip was aimed at "projecting power in the Middle East by visiting two U.S. allies - Egypt and Turkey - who have grown closer to Russian Federation over the past couple of years".
