The United States is talking to
Turkey about its concern over Ankara's decision to co-produce a
long-range air and missile defence system with a Chinese firm
under US sanctions, US Ambassador Francis Ricciardone said
"We are very concerned about the prospective deal with the
sanctioned Chinese firm. Yes this is a commercial decision, it
is Turkey's sovereign right, but we are concerned about what it
means for allied air defence," Ricciardone told reporters.
