Turkey doesn't see NATO compatibility issues with Russian missiles: Erdogan spokesman

ANKARA (Reuters) - NATO-member Turkey does not see a system compatibility problem with using Russian missiles in its planned air defenses, the spokesman for President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.

Ibrahim Kalin made the comment at a news conference in Ankara. Turkey’s defense minister said earlier on Wednesday that talks with Moscow on procuring the missiles had “progressed significantly”.
