Turkey still plans missile order


The delivery plan for Russia’s S-400 missile defence systems to Turkey is continuing as planned, Turkish foreign ministry spokespers­on Hami Aksoy said on Friday, dismissing reports that Ankara was evaluating a delay in response to US concerns.

Turkey’s purchase of the Russian systems has strained its already tense ties with the US, a Nato ally.

The US has warned of sanctions if Turkey presses ahead with the deal. –
