Ankara assures S-400 systems to do no harm to deal on F-35 fighters
Turkey will take necessary measures to use Russia's S-400 air defense missile systems without harming Washington's F-35 fifth generation fighters, a source in the Turkish Foreign Ministry said.
"During out talks with the United States, we assured that the S-400 systems will be used separately from NATO’s systems, and in a manner that will help preserve sensitive information concerning the F-35 aircraft," TASS cited the source as saying.
"We will take all necessary measures in that regard," the source said when asked to comment on Bloomberg’s report saying that Ankara was considering providing US technical experts with an opportunity to study the S-400 systems.
Earlier, the media said that the U.S. administration had cleared Turkey to purchase the Patriot systems, worth a total of $3.5 billion.
