No NATO members raised issue of Turkey exclusion over Russian S-400 purchase

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Thursday that none of the bloc's members have raised an issue of Ankara's exclusion from the alliance over the S-400 systems, adding that Russian systems would not be integrated into NATO's air defence systems, ONA reports qutiong .

"Turkey is an important NATO member and no ally has raised that issue at all because we all see that we are dependent on each other", Stoltenberg said during the Aspen Security Forum in the United States' city of Aspen on Wednesday, when asked if any NATO state had wanted Turkey to be removed from the alliance over its S-400 purchases that could allegedly open a way for espionage activities against them.
