Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said in an exclusive interview with CBS News this week that his government intends to defy the U.S.

Erdogan confirmed his plans to CBS News chief foreign affairs correspondent Margaret Brennan after she asked him about Russian government claims that Turkey would purchase more S-400 systems.

"I explained everything to President Biden," Erdogan said in an interview taped Tuesday on the sidelines of the U.N.

General Assembly in New York, claiming that America's refusal to sell Turkey the U.S.-made Patriots system as an alternative had led his government to purchase the Russian system instead.

Both the Trump and Biden administrations have maintained that the Russian S-400 system is a danger if activated in the same country that flies F-35 jets.

But in retaliation for Turkey's S-400 purchase, the Trump administration halted its delivery of the F-35s, dropped Turkey from the program and imposed sanctions on Turkish defense officials.

"So it sounds like you still intend to buy another round of these S-400s, of these Russian missile systems?" Brennan asked.

During the interview, Erdogan also told CBS News that he would prefer that the U.S.

Biden told The New York Times' editorial board in January 2020 that Erdogan was "an autocrat," and cited his expansive powers and abuse of power.

President's definition of an autocrat remains unknown to me, I don't know what he meant," Erdogan told Brennan.

Erdogan told CBS News that it was Biden who asked him to consider having Turkish forces run the airport in Kabul in the wake of the U.S.

In an interview that will air on Sunday's "Face the Nation," Erdogan laid out what he described as his requirements to do business with the Taliban
