ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said there was no problem with the country's planned purchase of Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile systems and talks have also been held on the S-500 system, Haberturk and other newspapers reported on Friday.

Speaking to reporters on his plane on returning from a trip to Ukraine and Serbia, Erdogan said there would be no joint production in the first stage of S-400 purchases, but in the second stage "God willing we will take joint production steps", Haberturk said.
