(Worthy News) - Turkey will honor its air-defense deal with Russia despite warnings from Washington, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said following talks with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov.

"We have agreed with Russia in the end and signed an agreement. This agreement is valid [and] we are discussing when the delivery will be," Cavusoglu told reporters on March 29.

"This agreement is a done deal," he added.

Four U.S. senators on March 28 introduced a bipartisan bill to prohibit the transfer of F-35s to Turkey until the U.S. government certifies that Ankara will not take delivery of the S-400 system. [ Source: Radio Free Europe (Read More...) ]
