ANKARA- Turkey will "take reciprocal steps" if the United States imposes sanctions over the purchase of Russian S-400 defence systems, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday.

The Turkish lira weakened briefly to 5.9075 against U.S. dollar after the comment, to its weakest level in two weeks.Washington has warned of sanctions and cutting Turkey out of an F-35 jet programme if it accepts delivery of the surface-to-air S-400s. Speaking to Anadolu news agency, Cavusoglu said it is impossible to cancel the S-400 orders.
