Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Reuters, Friday (September 13) during an interview at the Ottoman Dolmabahce palace complex on the Bosphorus in Istanbul.

Erdogan said he will discuss buying U.S. Patriot missiles with President Donald Trump this month, saying his personal bond with the U.S. leader could overcome a crisis caused by Ankara buying Russian air defense systems. Turkey's purchase of the Russian S-400 missile system in July raised the prospect of U.S. sanctions, and the State Department has said an offer to sell Raytheon Co's Patriot missile defense system to Ankara has expired.
