US Vice-President Mike Pence has warned Turkey against buying a Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missile system that Washington sees as a threat to US jets.

He said Turkey “must choose” between remaining a key Nato member or risk the security of that partnership “by making such reckless decisions”.

Turkey responded that the purchase of the advanced system was a done deal.
