Turkey says planned Chinese missile defence won't be NATO integrated

ANKARA, Feb 19 (Reuters) - China made the best bid in a tender to develop Turkey’s planned long-range missile defence system, Turkish Defence Minister Ismet Yilmaz said, adding that Ankara would use the system without integrating it with NATO’s.

According to his written response to a parliamentary question published on Thursday, Yilmaz said the work in assessing bids had been completed and no new bids had been received.
