Turkey urges US to avoid harmful steps on bilateral relations

Ankara urged the U.S. to avoid taking steps harmful to bilateral relations after the latter's comments on the Russian S-400 defense system, which is expected to be delivered to Turkey soon, Daily Sabah reports.

"The U.S. State Department spokesperson's statement regarding Turkey's purchase of the S-400 air defense system does not comply with the spirit and the content of the meeting between President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and U.S. President Donald Trump at the G20 Summit," Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said Wednesday.

Aksoy noted that Turkey has not yet received a response from Washington regarding the proposal for a working group on the S-400s.
