Turkey not distancing itself from NATO with Russian S-400s deal - minister

ANKARA, May 3 (Reuters) - NATO member Turkey is not distancing itself from the military alliance by making an agreement with Russia on purchasing S-400 missile defence systems, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said on Friday.

In an interview with broadcaster NTV, Akar said that the latest U.S. offer to sell a rival Patriot missile defence system to Turkey was more positive than Washington’s previous offers.
