Mevlut Cavusoglu: "Turkey made no promises about not installing Russian S-400s"

Turkey has given no promises to anyone about not installing or using Russian S-400 missile defence systems, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was cited as saying by state media on Tuesday, despite a row with the United States over the systems, ONA reports citing Yeni Shafak.

Washington has told Ankara that the S-400s pose a threat to its F-35 fighter jets and has warned its NATO ally that it will face U.S. sanctions unless it drops the Russian systems. It also removed Turkey from the F-35 jet programme, where Ankara was a buyer and manufacturer, in response to the Russian deal.
