The Latest: Turkey aims to soothe NATO over Russian missiles

DAVOS, Switzerland — Turkey's foreign minister has reiterated a proposal to establish a NATO-lead committee to review possible threats to the alliance from Turkey's purchase of a Russian-made missile defence system. Speaking at a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Thursday he believes the S-400 missiles don't threaten Turkey's NATO allies. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance has so far been unable to reach an agreement on Turkey's committee proposal. Stoltenberg said: "We will try to do whatever we can to find a way to solve this issue because it's one of the issues that has created problems inside the alliance. There's no way to deny that."The Associated Press
