Turkey's purchase of Russian S-400 missile defence systems, which has raised tensions with Washington, is a "done deal" and cannot be cancelled, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday, April 4th.

Speaking at a news conference on the sidelines of a visit to the United States, Cavusoglu also said Turkey's relations with Russia were not an alternative to its alliances with NATO or the European Union, according to Reuters.
