  • Allied officials again indicate that the Chinese HQ-9 SAM, which Turkey is looking to purchase, will not be allowed to integrate with NATO systems

"In Afghanistan we have learned how to work and operate together within the alliance, and we want to maintain and further develop that ability to work and operate together.
