“We need to gradually end the monopoly of the dollar once and for all by using local and national currency among us," Erdoğan said.
Political tensions between Ankara and Washington had sparked worries in markets in August after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to use economic pressure over an American pastor who faces terrorism-related charges in Turkey.
The Turkish lira has been losing its value against the U.S. dollar past several weeks after the U.S. president doubled tariffs on Turkish steel and aluminum.
Referring to the S-400 agreement with Russia, Erdoğan said that "some are disturbed by this“, adding that Turkey does not need permission from anyone to guard its territory.
Last December, Turkey announced it had concluded an agreement with Russia for the purchase of two S-400 systems by early 2020.
This April both parties agreed on early delivery of the systems.
The S-400 is Russia's most advanced long-range anti-aircraft missile system, with the ability to carry three types of missiles capable of destroying targets, including ballistic and cruise missiles.
In June, the U.S. Senate passed a bill prohibiting sales to Turkey o F-35 jets, citing the S-400 purchase as well as Turkey's detention of U.S citizens.
