MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has said that at negotiations with Russian President Vladimir Putin he expressed to the Russian leader his concern over Turkey’s purchase of Russian weapons.

"We discussed developments in the Eastern Mediterranean, a new energy map that is being formed in this region, Russia’s role and both countries’ relations with Turkey. I expressed our concern to President Putin over Turkey’s programs for armaments, because it wishes to preserve a casus belli (reason for war) with our country," Tsipras told a news conference after the talks.

Earlier, Russia concluded a contract with Turkey to provide air defense systems S-400 Triumf by the end of 2019.
