Turkish President says US will refrain from imposing sanctions on Turkey

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the United States will refrain from imposing sanctions on Turkey over Ankara's planned purchase of a missile defence system from Russia.

Speaking at a rare news conference for foreign media in Istanbul, Erdogan said that the purchase of Russian S-400 systems is a "done deal" and US should think carefully before imposing sanctions on Turkey.
