He is saying the focus was on development of the systems rather than purchasing.

"We will meet our immediate demands by buying the S-400 systems, and develop our own national air and missile defense systems on the other hand," Isik said in an interview on state television channel TRT Haber.

"All technical work is completed, and we have arrived at the final decision point on buying S-400 systems from Russia," Isik added.
