Turkey: S-400 system 'vital'; will retaliate to any US sanctions
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has repeated a retaliation threat against any US sanctions over Ankara's purchase of a Russian missile defence system, Al Jazeera reports.
Speaking at a conference in Qatar's capital, Doha, Cavusoglu said on Saturday that Turkey would not cancel its deal with Russia over the S-400 missile system "whatever the consequences".
"Sanctions and threatening language never work. But if sanctions are placed, Turkey will have to reciprocate," Cavusoglu said at the Doha Forum, a two-day conference billed as a global platform for dialogue.
