Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said his country will not step back from the deal to buy the S-400 missile defence system from Russian Federation, state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

The Pentagon, however, quickly dismissed the notion, saying "a technical working group at this stage is not necessary or a path the United States is considering as a resolution". Senior US politicians said they cautioned Mr Cavusoglu that deepening ties with Moscow "will risk sanctions and Turkey's involvement in the F-35 programme".
