August 6, 2019

ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that he believes U.S. President Donald Trump will not allow ties between the two NATO allies to become captive to a dispute over Ankara’s purchase of a Russian S-400 defense system.

Speaking to Turkish ambassadors in Ankara, Erdogan also said there is no evidence that S-400 missile defense system will harm U.S. F-35 stealth fighter jets.
