Russian S-400 missiles systems acquired by Turkey will not be integrated into NATO air defense system

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Alliance has no plans to integrate Russian s-400 missile systems purchased by Turkey into its missile defense system.

The Alliance has repeatedly stated that the S-400 is incompatible with NATO's air and missile systems.

"Our answer is no. There are no plans to integrate Russian S-400 systems into a single anti-aircraft and anti-missile system," Stoltenberg told reporters in Brussels.

Earlier, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that the S-400 missile systems purchased from Russia will be deployed in April 2020. At the same time, the Secretary of the US State Department Mike Pompeo said that Turkey can avoid American sanctions if it does not deploy the systems. Otherwise, the consequences will be "very grave".
