LE BOURGET، Paris (Reuters) - U.S. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and his Turkish counterpart Hulusi Akar remain in contact about Ankara’s plans to buy a Russian air defence system، and may meet during NATO meetings in Brussels next week، NATO’s commander told Reuters.

U.S. General Tod Wolters said the military-to-military relationship between the United States and NATO remained “absolutely، positively solid،” despite Washington’s decision to cancel Turkey’s purchase of F-35 stealth fighters if it proceeds with its purchase of the Russian S-400 air defence system.

“We won’t co-locate those two assets، the S-400 and the F-35،” Wolters said at the Paris Airshow. “I know there’ll be follow on dialogue to work on... details between Minister Akar and Secretary Shanahan. As a matter of fact there may the opportunity to meet next week at the ministerials in NATO.”
