Erdogan Firm On S-400

Turkey’s President Recip Tayyip Erdogan appears to have stuck to his guns on the S-400 ballistic missile defence system during his meeting with U.S. President Biden earlier this week. State media in Ankara reported no breakthrough on the issue which had resulted in Washington removing Turkey from the F-35 programme. More meetings are expected between the two sides on this and other issues.
