    US State Department Acting Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs Tina Kaidanow is expected to travel to Turkey next week to offer Ankara the US Patriot surface-to-air missile system as an alternative to Russia's S-400, Turkey's Sabah newspaper has reported.

    Russia and Turkey reached a $2.5 billion agreement on the sale of S-400s in 2017, which caused a stir among NATO members. It is expected that the first batch will be shipped to Turkey in late 2019.
