NATO welcomes cooperation between members of the western security alliance, spokesperson Oana Lungescu said in an interview with state-run broadcaster ERT which discussed, among other issues, the defense deal signed between Greece and France.

“What matters to NATO is that this equipment is interoperable, that we can work together and operate alongside, so we welcome cooperation among NATO allies on this issue,” she told ERT.

Commenting on Turkey’s purchase of S-400 anti-ballistic missile defense systems from Russia, she said that NATO’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and many allies have been “very clear that the Russian system is not interoperable and cannot be integrated in NATO defense systems.”
