"Postponement or suspension is not on the agenda. It's a done deal, why would we discuss a delay?" he said.

Cavusoglu said negotiations continue with the United States regarding a joint commission on S-400s and F-35 fighter jets.

"If there will be a working group, we would like to carry on without any prerequisites. Let the experts decide (on S-400 and F-35 compatibility). We have a constructive offer; if the U.S. trusts itself then it should accept the offer," Daily Sabah cited the minister as saying.
