MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia and Turkey are in talks about the possibility of jointly manufacturing some components of Russia’s S-400 missile defence system in Turkey, the TASS news agency cited Sergei Chemezov, head of Russia’s Rostec state conglomerate, as saying.

Turkey began receiving deliveries of Russian S-400 systems earlier this month, prompting the United States to begin removing Turkey from its F-35 stealth fighter programme over security concerns.

TASS said Chemezov’s comments were originally made to Turkey’s Anadolu news agency.
