Turkish FM says Russian S-400 air defense poses no threat to NATO, is ‘compatible’ with alliance
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday that Russia’s S-400 air defense system was compatible with NATO, which needed to set up a working group to study it.
“The claim is that the S-400 and F-45s are incompatible. That’s the claim. Here is our proposal: let’s have a working group and NATO can chair this, and let’s let experts make the assessment and come back to us,” he said.
“We believe the S-400 and F-45 are compatible,” Reuters quoted Cavusoglu as saying during a panel discussion at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos. “It does not pose any threats to the NATO system or to NATO allies.”
